VIENNA (AP) – An international human rights organization has criticized a U.S. Supreme Court ruling about election spending in America.
The criticism comes from a senior official of the 56-nation Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe.
The head of its office that monitors democratic practices says the ruling effectively lifting limits on election spending by corporations and unions “threatens to further marginalize candidates without strong financial backing or extensive personal resources.”
Janez Lenarcic spoke Friday, a day after the 5-to-4 U.S. Supreme Court ruling.
