Witnesses that included Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) testified at a hearing on a proposed constitutional amendment in response to the Supreme Court’s decision on campaign finance in McCutcheon v. FEC. The amendment would allow Congress and the states to set limits on the raising and spending in political campaigns. Senator Reid said “dark money” was “perverting” the electoral system and described the Court’s ruling as taking the country “back to the sewer.” Senator McConnell in turn called the amendment a “ploy” designed to stir up the Democrats' base for the November 2014 elections. close
