Bloomberg News Looks at the Legacy of James Bopp
Salant begins with: “Attorney James Bopp Jr. has spent 30 years fighting limits on campaign spending, and next year’s political landscape could be transformed by his labor: An election season in which at least $6 billion is likely to be spent, more than $700 million higher than 2008.”
The article assesses the increase we are seeing in political spending. It also details Bopp’s landmark legal challenges over the years, his loyalty to his home state of Indiana, and how free speech is at the heart of his mission.
For the full text of the article, got to “ Election Spending to Exceed $6 Billion Thanks Partly to Jim Bopp.”
