Tea Party Group Fails in Appeal to Overturn PAC Limits

A Tea Party-linked group seeking to loosen restrictions on corporate political action committees was handed a defeat by a Washington appeals court, marking a rare win for advocates of campaign finance controls.

The decision, keeping in place limits on corporate PACs including who can give and how much, follows a series of Supreme Court and appeals court decisions that expanded corporations’ ability to wield financial influence in elections.
