“FEC Disclosure Loophole Closes On Secret Donors As Court Won’t Stay Ruling”

HuffPo reports on the district court order refusing a stay in the van Hollen case.  The issue now goes to the DC Circuit.

The FEC also declined to appeal. The three Republican Commissioners issued a very strong dissent from the FEC’s decision not to appeal this van Hollen case  (it would take a vote of four commissioners to appeal).  I expect this statement to get heavy play as the intervenors seek a stay from the D.C. Circuit, and potentially from the Supreme Court.  Two of the three Democratic Commissioners issued their own statement explaining their decision not to appeal.
