Americans’ constitutional right to express views freely is under attack. One point of attack involves laws that require nonprofit organizations to subject their donors to public scrutiny. A new report published by the John Locke Foundation explains why lawmakers should proactively reject this type of law. It amounts to an intimidation tactic that invades donors’ privacy for political gain. In the report, “Protecting Donor Privacy in North Carolina,” author and attorney Jon Guze, John Locke Foundation director of legal studies, takes aim at the chilling effect of disclosure laws. He discusses key elements of the report with Donna Martinez.
