Limits and Loopholes
The Quest for Money, Free Speech, and Fair Elections


Other Titles in:
Campaign Finance | Congress

October 2007 | 175 pages | CQ Press
From the authors of Legislative Labyrinth: Congress and Campaign Finance Reform.Elections, the basic mechanism of representative democracy, should be untainted by corruption and provide a platform for free speech. But running for office takes money&BAD:mdash;a lot of it, usually&BAD:mdash;which means campaign finance has become a pitched battle over the fundamental political values of free speech versus fair elections. With insiders' perspectives, Farrar-Myers and Dwyre tell the story of what it took to pass campaign finance legislation, provide analysis of the subsequent court action, and explore the regulatory and electoral outcomes of reform efforts. Limits and Loopholes is a story about incremental policymaking and inter-branch struggle, about institutional design and unintended consequences, about the influence of interest groups and the media, and about the health of our representative democracy. Bringing together discussions of core values and the policymaking process, this book serves as an excellent case study that traces an issue from inception, through legislation and litigation, and finally to implementation.
