What are they saying about Jim Bopp and the Bopp Law Firm, PC?

Campaign Finance Litigation

“He is the Energizer Bunny of campaign law reform.” ABA Journal, November 2006

“Indiana lawyer James Bopp is on a mission to unravel the nation's campaign laws.” Bloomberg Businessweek, October 3, 2011

“The nation's leading litigator against campaign restrictions.” Washington Post, September 14, 1999

“The pre-eminent courtroom advocate in recent years arguing that limiting campaign donations violate the First Amendment by suppressing political speech.” New York Times, March 29, 2001

“Yet much of the success seen by the counter-reformers has come from one man's quest to end campaign finance regulation through litigation.” HuffingtonPost, September 27, 2011

“The man most responsible for the way campaigns and elections are financed in America.” National Journal Daily, June 2, 2011

“He developed the legal strategy that has systematically undermined campaign finance reform legislation.” National Journal Daily, June 2, 2011

“James Bopp is the point man for conservative wealthy interests whose goal is to dismantle the laws and regulations we have in place to stop the buying of Congress and other elected officials.” McClatchy Newspapers, October 24, 2010

“Jim Bopp, its intellectual architect, believes this is a good thing – more money, the better (in campaigns), he says. Reformers (and most voters) disagree. Their battle is over the most-basis ideas of our democracy: at stake – according to both sides – is either the revitalization of politics, or its final capture by the powerful. . . . What Jim Bopp Jr. believes is turning out to matter a whole lot more.” The Atlantic, October 2012

“History's pendulum is now swinging back toward the days when political finances were only lightly regulated, when the system was more open to the cacophonous participation that Jim Bopp loves.” The Atlantic, October 2012

“There is joy in Boppworld. And the prospect of an end to all contribution limits is even more cause for hope. . . . Fewer, bigger donations would allow politicians to spend more time with voters. And voters are the ones who would ultimately control politicians' destinies, punishing the corrupt and rewarding the virtuous. I don't doubt that Bopp believes this. His is an optimistic vision, fundamentally, about Americans and their politics. I hope, if we keep on our present course, that he turns out to be right.” The Atlantic, October 2012

“How an IU graduate helped open the floodgates to corporate and union campaign spending.” Indiana University Alumni Magazine, Fall 2012

“It is quite possible that, largely because of Bopp's success, there will never again be campaign-finance legislation as comprehensive as McCain-Feingold.” Mother Jones, May/June 2011

“We should now call the statute ‘the Federal Election Campaign Act paid for and authorized by Jim Bopp.' He keeps coming back and back and back.” Bloomberg Businessweek, October 3, 2011

“We had a 10-year plan to take all this down. If we do it right, I think we can pretty well dismantle the entire regulatory regime that is called campaign finance law. . . . We have been awfully successful and we are not done yet.” New York Times, January 25, 2010

“So Super PACs, like 527 groups and late electioneering communications, are here to stay, and Democrats are adapting to the new reality. What comes next will add another layer to the legacy of a single lawyer in Terre Haute.” National Journal Daily, June 2, 2001

“It's safe to say that groups on the left and right have Bopp to thank for their new-found freedoms.” Bloomberg, September 21, 2011
