Prof. Levinson quoted in LA Times on campaign finance penalties

Associate Clinical Professor Jessica Levinson was quoted in a Los Angeles Times story about two Arizona nonprofits who owe $15 million in campaign finance penalties to the state of California. The two campaign groups used so-called "dark money" on political advertising to fight Gov. Jerry Brown's 2012 tax-hike campaign.


"I don't know if they're ever going to see the full amount," said Jessica Levinson, a Loyola Law School professor who tracks campaign finance issues. "It can be very difficult to ever collect the money."
