On July 7, four voters who wish to contribute more than $1,500 to an independent candidate for Governor filed a federal lawsuit, challenging the Maine campaign finance law that lets individuals give $3,000 to a candidate who runs in both a partisan primary and a general election, but only $1,500 to a petitioning candidate. See this story. The case is Woodhouse v Maine Commission on Governmental Ethics and Election Practices, 1:14-266. Thanks to Thomas MacMillan for the link. This case is very similar to one filed recently by the Constitution Party in Wyoming.
