Loopholes, Tricks and End Runs: Evasions of Campaign Finance Laws, and a Model Law to Block Them, by Molly Milligan – Center for Governmental Studies

  • “This report is the result of over one year of focused research on the many ways that politicians raise money through non-campaign entities. The Center for Governmental Studies (CGS) initiated this study as it has become increasingly obvious that the campaign finance reforms of the past 30 years are no longer always sufficient to control the money given to elected officials and candidates. CGS has studied and provided solutions for campaign finance issues for over 25 years… [this report] is the beginning of an ongoing, detailed investigation of the ways elected officials and candidates evade campaign finance laws, enabling them to raise sums of money that often significantly exceed the amounts allowed under applicable
    campaign finance laws. CGS will update this report periodically on its website to provide an ongoing, comprehensive and current view of these evasions.”
