Tuesday’s political law moves and news

POLITICAL LAW FIRM LAUNCH. Chris Ashby launched a new firm and its website is here. He’s on Twitter, too.

SAM BROWN TO ALLEN & OVERY. Sam Brown will be joining Allen & Overy’s this week. He joins the firm from the Federal Election Commission, where he served in Commissioner Ellen Weintraub’s office.

POST PROFILES COLBERT LAWYER. Caplin & Drysdale’s Matthew Sanderson is the subject of this Post interview.

PAC DONOR CONTROVERSY. The Post. “Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney on Monday dismissed criticism of a supporter who used a shell corporation to funnel $1 million to a pro-Romney group.”

BLUMAN OPINION. The opinion in Bluman v. FEC is available here. The Post covers the case here. “‘It is fundamental to the definition of our national political community that foreign citizens do not have a constitutional right to participate in, and thus may be excluded from, activities of democratic self-government,’ wrote Kavanaugh, a judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit.” I wonder if the news will make it here.


TOGO TO GO. The Post. “Togo West Jr., chairman of the D.C. Board of Elections and Ethics, is resigning, according to city officials.”
