As I have argued, taxpayer financing of campaigns, such as NC has with appellate judges, is clearly unconstitutional in light of the United States Supreme Court decision in Davis. v. FEC.
An Arizona district court has ruled that matching fund (rescue fund) provisions are unconstitutional. Since it was impossible to sever these provisions from the whole Arizona law, the entire law is unconstitutional.
NC should immediately stop implementing and enforcing our taxpayer financing systems, not only in light of this case, but due to the clear unconstitutional nature of matching funds.
