Augusta, Maine: Yesterday, the National Organization for Marriage and American Principles in Action filed a constitutional challenge, NOM v. Mckee et al., to Maine's campaign finance law that requires that any person or organization who contributes or spends more than $5,000 on a ballot measure be registered as a "ballot measure committee." According to the James Madison Center for Free Speech, a Maine law that required individuals or organizations to register as political action committees (PACs) was declared unconstitutional approximately 10 years ago. That case was Volle v. Webster.[1]

Both groups are also seeking a restraining order that would allow for the groups to run television ads and donate funds to the Question 1 campaign without registering as a committee.[2]
