"The pleasant sound you hear -- the clatter of bad laws crumbling -- is the edifice of campaign finance restrictions disintegrating. Washington state provides a fresh example of the exhaustion of the 'campaign finance reform' project, which tries to empower government to restrict speech about the composition and conduct of government. The state law at issue is awful, but usefully awful: It perfectly illustrates how the political class crafts campaign regulations for the purpose of protecting the job security of members of that class: elected incumbents."
