Reason has this interesting article on its web page about the Libertarian Party’s court battle with the Federal Election Commission, over whether limits on individual contributions should apply to bequests. The party received a surprise bequest in 2007 in excess of $200,000. The FEC refused to let the estate award the money to the party at once, and required the estate to hold back the money and release it slowly over the next seven years. Whether the FEC’s rules are too restrictive is a question pending in the U.S. Court of Appeals, D.C. Circuit.
