“Lhota Backers Challenge Cap on Spending”


A new Republican group supporting the mayoral candidacy of Joseph J. Lhota sued New York election officials in federal court Wednesday to allow individuals to contribute more than the current $150,000 annual maximum to independent political groups.

Unless the court believes that this comes too close to the election (a laches-type argument), a court could well grant an injunction against enforcing this limit in the mayoral election.
