Althouse on McCutcheon v. Federal Election Commission

Quoting NYT:

The decision, by a 5-to-4 vote along ideological lines, was sort of a sequel to Citizens United, the 2010 decision that struck down limits on independent campaign spending by corporations and unions. But that ruling did nothing to disturb the other main form of campaign finance regulation: caps on direct contributions to candidates and political parties.

Via “The Supreme Court on Wednesday issued a major campaign finance decision, striking down limits on federal campaign contributions for the first time.” @ Althouse.

It’s a mistake to discard the essay portion of the SAT

We understand not every student is destined to be a Shakespeare, a T.S. Elliot or a Joseph Pulitzer. But putting a noun, verb and object in the proper order is not rocket science. And asking that the SATs test such knowledge and that it be taught in our classrooms is to demand only the basics in education.

ATF bigwig gets permission for fraud

A top ATF official who oversaw the disastrous “Operation Fast and Furious” took a high-paying private sector job while still collecting his government check.

The move by William McMahon in 2012 “would have clearly constituted fraud,” according to the Department of Justice’s Office of the Inspector General.

But the OIG throws in this caveat: It was not fraud because McMahon had permission for the arrangement, according to the inspector general report obtained by the Journal Sentinel last week. CNN and Townhall.com first reported on the OIG memo.
