Delaware Disclosure Law Upheld by Federal Appeals Court

“This morning, transparency and accountability in our elections won the day. After Citizens United unleashed the floodgates to unlimited special interest campaign spending, Delaware adopted one of the strongest disclosure laws in the country to assure that voters would – at the very least – know where all of the money in politics is coming from. Transparency and disclosure of campaign cash helps Delaware citizens hold our elected officials accountable and make informed choices at the ballot box.”
