Ding Dong, DISCLOSE is Dead

Sic semper campaign finance lawsEarlier today, the U.S. Senate voted 57 to 41 on a procedural motion to end debate on the DISCLOSE Act.  Because such motions must get 60 votes in order to pass, the DISCLOSE Act is likely dead for the time being. 

 

But the drum of censorship continues to beat on.  The Hill reports that Charles Schumer, the Senator who was the chief sponsor for the Act, has vowed that the Senate “will go back at this bill again and again and again until we pass it.”  Like a creature from a horror movie, expect to see the zombie DISCLOSE Act come back to haunt us again sometime this fall.
