A federal court invalidated a decision that would have taken some of the "dark money" contributions out of a campaign funding system pouring hundreds of millions into campaign ad buys, reports B&C. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. circuit Tuesday reversed a lower court decision (Van Hollen v. FEC) and upheld a Federal Election Commission interpretation of campaign finance law. The case was sent back to the district court. The Sunlight Foundation, whose goal is more transparency in election funding, especially since the Citizens United decision, called it a setback and hopes the district court will favor transparency.
