PILF Applauds Supreme Court Decision on Donor Privacy

Blow to Kamala Harris’ Intrusion into Private Information

(Alexandria, VA) – July 1, 2021. Today, the Supreme Court issued a decision on the donor privacy case, Americans for Prosperity Foundation and Thomas Moore Law Center v. Becerra.

In a 6-3 decision, the Court ruled that California’s forced disclosure of all donors over $5,000 is unconstitutional.

“Today’s decision is a clear victory for donor privacy,” said PILF President J. Christian Adams. “California allowed two thousand private donor documents to be posted online, subjecting Americans to potential abuse.  The Court today properly found the Constitution protects our right to freely associate without the state monitoring our protected activity. 

As we outlined in our brief to the Court, disclosure in today’s heated political climate can lead to individuals experiencing threats of violence, boycotts, and harassment. The right of anonymity dates back to the founding including with the anonymously-published The Federalist Papers. We applaud the Court for upholding the precious right to anonymity and protecting donor privacy.”

The Court noted that amicus briefs influenced their decision to protect donor privacy.

This case is a blow to the policies of Vice President Kamala Harris.  As California Attorney General, she developed and enforced the intrusion into private donor information that the Supreme Court struck down today.
