What has a funny last name and strikes fear into the hearts of the FEC?

This guy.

Do you know who James Bopp is? I didn't either, but he's a BFD in the world of campaign finance law. To wit:
"Bopp brought the Citizens United v. FEC case and breached the wall between corporate money and partisan politics; he unraveled major provisions of the McCain-Feingold law; he has helped to make state judicial elections more expensive; he's fighting to undo mandatory disclosure of donors; and now, he says he's found a way for federal candidates to ask corporations for cash."
One day, dear readers, we will talk about my views on campaign finance law. And on that day, you will probably hate me.

Until then, Bopp.
