Alabama coal tycoon Shaun McCutcheon challenges the Watergate-era restrictions on aggregate monetary contributions to candidates and political parties by individuals per election cycle. Speakers discuss the ramifications of a small wealthy minority being able to drown out the voices of others with campaign contributions. Federal law limits an individual's donations in an election cycle to a total of $123,200 to candidates, national party committees and certain political committees, including a $48,600 limit on what individuals can give directly to candidates.
