Judge rules in favor of pro-Vitter super PAC

By By The Associated Press

BATON ROUGE  — A federal judge has ruled that a super PAC supporting Republican U.S. Sen. David Vitter can raise unlimited

amounts of money for Vitter, who is running for governor in 2015.

Judge Martin Feldman issued the decision Friday, declaring that the Fund for Louisiana's Future won't have to comply with

a state law capping contributions at $100,000 for each election cycle.

The super PAC had argued the restriction unconstitutionally limits political action groups' free speech. Feldman agreed, saying

the Fund for Louisiana's Future would face "significant and irreparable injury" if the donation cap was enforced.

Charlie Spies, the PAC treasurer says he is gratified by the decision.

Kathleen Allen, administrator for the Board of Ethics, says the board will decide whether to appeal the judge's ruling at

its meeting this month.
