“U.S. court sides with Philly cops fighting ban on political contributions”

News from PA:

A decision by a U.S. appeals court could give the Philadelphia police union increased political clout.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 3rd Circuit ruled Monday that the city’s ban on political contributions by police violates the First Amendment. Other city employees including firefighters, who successfully challenged a similar ban, are allowed to make contributions.
