Ruling About Restricting Political Speeches Doesn't Move to the Supreme Court

The US Supreme Court will not hear a challenge to Alabama’s ban on the transfer of campaign contributions between political action committees. The justices left in place a lower court ruling that said the 2010 law does not unconstitutionally restrict political speech. The Alabama Democratic Conference sued state officials over a portion of the law that prohibited the ADC’s PAC from getting money from other PACs to use for voter communication programs and to get voters to the polls. The court said Alabama has a sufficient interest in trying to prevent corruption to justify the restriction on political activity.
