Ms. Carney talked about campaign finance reform, focusing on the effects of the Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act of 2002, also known as McCain-Feingold. She also responded to audience telephone calls, faxes, and electronic mail. Supporters of the law argued that it benefited the public by closing off the unlimited and largely unregulated flow of “soft money” contributions to federal candidates and political parties. Opponents argued that the legislation would weaken political parties while increasing the influence of interest groups. They also mounted an unsuccessful legal challenge, claiming that the law violated First Amendment rights. close
