Do you see anything wrong with the use of the racketeering for political purposes? Here the damages were measured by the opponent's expenditure on speech.

I cannot bring an RICO action where the damages are physical injury, or even death, rather than monetary.

Bill -- if he had not offered tax-deductibility could only have been held liable by his donors for misuse of the dollars. (With the right attorney.)

The curious interplay of tax law and the seeming voluntary acceptance of restraints on speech that flow from that are what really what get me fired up about the campaign finance laws. Bill needed a more aggressive civil liberties advocate, notwithstanding any tax law violations and misuse of dollars.
