As reported in the Sante Fe New Mexican, legislation based on a Take Back educational paper was passed in the New Mexico legislature and signed by Governor Susana Martinez.
“SB 50, sponsored by Sen. Cisco McSorley, D-Albuquerque, and Albuquerque Republicans Reps. Jim Dine and Bill Rehm, closes what campaign finance reform advocates call a “credit card loophole” that can allow donors to make unverifiable, fraudulent contributions to politicians. The bill would require that donors type in a three-digit security code on the back of their credit or debit card when making a political contribution online, as well as a billing address, as when ordering a product over the internet. A relatively small tweak to the state’s campaign finance laws, it won backing from groups on the left, right and in the center, including Common Cause, Take Back Our Republic and Bridge Alliance.”
