PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

American campaign finance laws are complicated, as is trying to keep track of the myriad of significant contributors. In this activity I have my students first use their text and the chart at http://www.fec.gov/info/contriblimitschart1516.pdf to answer questions about funding amounts, then address campaign laws such as FECA and other more recent provisions. Students then jump to "open secrets.org" to track down recent donations by PACs, lobbyists, unions, and even wealthy individuals. I think it is a very eye-opening and non-partisan exercise.
