“Bob Bauer’s Advice on Campaign Finance Reform: Aim Low, or Prepare to Get Sued”


But Bauer, who was White House counsel to President Barack Obama before joining Perkins Coie in 2011, said suggestions such as “tightening up the earmarking rules, regulating single PAC, single-candidate super PACs or other super PACs … this isn’t going to happen. You’re not going to reach an agreement on these things. If you do, you are likely to be sued and if you are sued, there is a good chance you are going to lose.”


Don’t worry Bob. There’s no chance the Republican commissioners on the FEC will do anything productive along the lines you warn the FEC against taking.
