Tea Party Patriots Action Reacts to Supreme Court Ruling Striking Down California Donor Disclosure Rule
Atlanta, GA – Today, the U.S. Supreme Court struck down California’s requirement that tax-exempt charities disclose their major contributors. In response, Tea Party Patriots Action Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin issued the following statement:
“Today, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in favor of free speech, and denied the radical left a new way to cancel conservatives. California’s donor disclosure rule was designed to chill citizens’ rights to free speech, and we are pleased the Supreme Court overturned it. This issue is very important to us at TPPA, since we have first-hand experience with governmental agencies using illegal means to block political speech they oppose — it was our donors the IRS directly targeted during the Obama Administration.
“The Supreme Court’s rulings in the California and Arizona cases are a significant setback for left-wing extremists and their attempts to manipulate elections and civil discourse to their advantage.”
