Posted by Tanstaafl - Judge blocks Bustamante from using old campaign money - Sep. 22, 2003

This article is muddled enough that the real issues at work are unclear, but as far as I can tell, Bustamonte was given the money before contribution limits and should be able to spend it as he pleases. If donors didn't want him to spend it, they shouldn't have given it to him. Now that he has it, telling him he must give it back would an abridgement of his freedom of speech and an attempt to retroactively apply new campaign finance laws. Frustrating.
