” The majority was also unconvinced by the Biden administration’s argument that the regulation helps avoid the appearance of political corruption in the government.

The regulation barred campaigns from using more than $250,000 in post-election funds to repay a candidate’s loans to fund those campaigns.

“The theory of the legislation is easy to grasp. Political contributions that will line a candidate’s own pockets, given after his election to office, pose a special danger of corruption,” liberal Justice Elena Kagan wrote in her dissent.

Without the rule, “The politician is happy; the donors are happy. The only loser is the public. It inevitably suffers from government corruption,” Kagan wrote.
