Debates Lawsuit to be Filed on June 22

TIME Magazine has this story about the lawsuit against the Federal Election Commission that will be filed on Monday, June 22. The plaintiffs will include the Libertarian and Green Parties, and also some of the leading figures from Americans Elect. The lawsuit charges that the FEC has broken its own rules by refusing to consider the petition for a rule concerning general election presidential debates.

The attorney for the lawsuit is Alexandria Shapiro. This is not the lawsuit that has been planned for some time by former Governor Gary Johnson’s Our America Initiative. That lawsuit would have sued the Commission on Presidential Debates directly.
