More on McCutcheon - "Local congressional campaigns could see big money after Supreme Court decision"

Quoted in this one in the SGV Tribune. 

With the recent court decisions killing campaign finance reform in a “death by 1,000 papercuts,” Loyola Law School Associate Clinical Professor Jessica Levinson said any reform out of Congress would likely come in the form of increased requirements for disclosure of contributions. Campaigns are already required to disclose direct contributions — the kind that could increase under Wednesday’s decision — in reports filed with the Federal Election Commission. But donations to outside groups responsible for most independent expenditures — the kind that have skyrocketed in the post-Citizens United world — are often not disclosed.
“Disclosure is going to have to do a lot more work than it used to,” Levinson said.
