By 5 votes to 4 the Supreme Court has scrapped the aggregate limit cap of $123,000 that individuals could donate during a federal election cycle. Judge Breyer, dissenting, wrote that the ruling ..  “creates a loophole that will allow a single individual to contribute millions of dollars to a political party or to a candidate’s campaign.Taken together with Citizens United v Federal Election Commission, today’s decision eviscerates our nation’s campaign finance laws, leaving a remnant incapable of dealing with the grave problems of democratic legitimacy that those laws were intended to resolve.”
