Supreme Court struck down portion of campaign finance law

Adam Liptak of The New York Times reports that the "millionaire's amendment" was struck down by the Supreme Court in a 5-to-4 decision on Thursday. "The law at issue in Thursday’s decision imposed special rules in races with candidates who finance their own campaigns. Those candidates are required to disclose more information, and their opponents are allowed to raise more money." The majority decision called into question the constitutionality of allowing different contribution levels for candidates running against one another.
