"RNC Attorney Faces Skeptical Judges In Bid to End 'Soft Money' Restrictions"

BNA offers this report ($), which begins: "An attorney spearheading the Republican Party's challenge of Federal Election Commission limits on 'soft money'' funding for political parties faced skeptical questioning from a federal court panel during a lengthy court hearing Aug. 27 (Republican National Committee v. Federal Election Commission, D.D.C., No. 08-1953, hearing 8/27/090)."

Regular blog readers may recall that that same attorney, Jim Bopp, faced skeptical questioning (and even laughter) from a different three-judge panel when Citizens United was first argued before a different three-judge court. It may be Jim that gets the last laugh.
