Indiana Libertarian Party Challenges FEC

• Next News Network
The Libertarian Party of Indiana has filed a lawsuit against the Federal Elections Commission. The plaintiffs are suing the government so that they can create an expenditure-only account for party branding and non-government support. The McCain-Feingold Act prevents parties from creating such accounts, and limited the amount any party can raise or spend to support those seeking office. Dan Drexler, State Chairman of the LPIN, said, "When the legislation passed in 2002, it was intended to keep soft money and foreign influence out of our federal elections. However, the result has been more money entering into our elections through non-party channels, [and] less transparency in reporting that money."
