Court Overturns Rule for Disclosure of TV Ad Funders

A federal appeals court has overturned a rule requiring third-party groups to disclose the funders of election-related television ads. The ruling overrides a lower court decision that said the 2002 McCain-Feingold Act on campaign finance reform likely intended to require such disclosures. It marks a major victory for Republican-linked groups, including the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Americans for Prosperity and Crossroads GPS, which had altered their ads after being compelled to disclose who funded them.
