Republican FEC Nominee Argued for Overturning of Ban on Corporate Contributions to Federal Candidates

HuffPo:

But advocates may be disappointed to learn that Goodman, an attorney with LeClairRyan, has a record of opposing certain campaign finance reforms.

He argued — ultimately unsuccessfully — in United States v. Danielczyk to overturn the ban on direct corporate contributions to candidates. In that case, a judge ruled that the Citizens United decision invalidated the ban on direct corporate contributions to candidates.

“Citizens United was a sea change in First Amendment jurisprudence and renders the absolute ban on limited corporate contributions unconstitutional,” Goodman said after the initial victory. “We are pleased with this decision.”
