Guests discussed political action committees and proposals to require public financing of campaigns. Miller recently wrote that election 1994 is the “Year of the Millionaire.” She favors public financing and the abolition of PACs as a way to open up the political system to more candidates. Gans thinks both Miller’s proposals are unrealistic and possibly unconstitutional. Bonifaz is the author of a legal theory asserting that current campaign financing laws violate the First Amendment. He is suing the state of New York on behalf of congressional candidate Sal Albanese. Senator McConnell is opposed to spending or giving limits in campaigns. Mr. Bonifaz and Senator McConnell took part in the discussion via telephone. close
