Judge Upholds Service Contractor Campaign Donation Ban

A federal judge has ruled a law banning government contractors from contributing to political candidates, parties and their committees should stand, Courthouse News Service reports.

U.S. District Judge James Boasberg issued a 19-page ruling against the three plaintiffs, two of which hold contracts with the U.S. Agency for International Development and the other with the Administrative Conference of the United States.

According to Fierce Government, the Federal Election Campaign Act of 1972 bans contributions from individuals with whom a federal agency has directly contracted with for personal services.

Personal services contractors also cannot donate to any super political action committee and must avoid in-kind contributions to super PACs, Geoff Whiting writes for Fierce Government.
