Posted on April 30, 2014 (June 17, 2022) Democracy Amendments Share: Retired U.S. Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens is scheduled to testify today on Capitol Hill at a Senate hearing on the high court’s decision to strike limits on aggregate campaign contributions. According to National Law Journal, “… the 94-year-old former justice has recently criticized the divided opinion in McCutcheon v. Federal Election Commission as giving too much influence to money in politics.The voter is less important than the man who provides money to the candidate,” Stevens told The New York Times about the decision. “It’s really wrong.” Sen. Angus King, I-Maine, who filed a bill that requires stricter reporting of political donors to the Federal Election Commission (FEC), announced Stevens as a witness in an email Monday morning. King titled the Senate Rules Committee hearing, “Dollars and Sense: How Undisclosed Money and Post-McCutcheon Campaign Finance Will Affect the 2014 Election and Beyond.” Stevens’ testimony would overlap with a day of oral arguments across the street at the Supreme Court. He has made news for his remarks during the tour for his book, Six Amendments: How and Why We Should Change the Constitution.” Watch Justice Stevens’ testimony live on C-SPAN by clicking here.
