“Judge voids key pieces of Arizona law gutting campaign finance rules”

Arizona Republic:

A judge has ruled that Arizona lawmakers violated the state Constitution on multiple fronts when they passed a sweeping overhaul of campaign-finance laws in 2016.

Those changes illegally limit the power of the voter-approved Citizens Clean Elections Commission to police campaign-finance laws and illegallycreate loopholes for spending limits, the ruling states.

Maricopa County Superior Court Judge David Palmer ruled that the changes are unconstitutional and cannot be enforced.
