Distinction between contributions and expenditures

Postby SammyJ » Mon Apr 23, 2012 7:33 pm

I can't seem to figure out what the difference is between contributions and expenditures in the reasoning of Buckley... The Court reasoned, according to Chemerinsky, that expenditure limits are a substantial restraint on political speech, while contribution limits have little direct restraint on political speech. Why? I don't get it... HELP!

Thanks in advance to you Con Law geniuses.
