Campaign Finance -- nonprofit corp contributions

Corporations (for profit or nonprofit) are forbidden from making campaign contributions or engaging in express advocacy. However, the Supreme Court held some years back that nonprofit corporations set up to carry out political advocacy and not receiving contributions from other corporations could engage in express advocacy. The Supreme Court is now to decide whether the exception extends to such "advocacy corporations" making direct contributions to candidates. See the article in the Washington Post.
