GOF and 11 other nonprofit organizations called on the U.S. Supreme Court to affirm a federal district court ruling that the electioneering communications provisions of the Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act (BCRA) are unconstitutional as applied. Electioneering communications prevent organizations like GOA from even mentioning the name of Congressmen in targeted broadcast issue advertisements. The case, Federal Election Commission v. Wisconsin Right to Life (No. 06-969), is the first as-applied challenge to BCRA to be argued before the Supreme Court. Importantly, the coalition also asked the Supreme Court to revisit its prior holdings in Buckley v. Valeo and McConnell v. FEC based on their overlooking of the people's Freedom of the Press.
