Joy Arnold to debate campaign finance laws on KET

Joy Arnold
Joy Arnold of Midway will be one of four panelists discussing campaign-finance laws on the "Kentucky Tonight" program from 8 to 9 p.m. Monday on KET. Arnold, a former member of the Midway City Council, will represent the Central Kentucky chapter of Move to Amend, a national organization. It is pushing for a constitutional amendment to reverse Supreme Court rulings that struck down some campaign-finance laws on grounds that campaign spending is a form of free speech. Her ally on the panel will be Richard Beliles, state chair of Common Cause Kentucky. Arguing the other side will be Christopher Thacker, president of the Central Kentucky Lawyers Chapter of The Federalist Society, and Paul Salamanca, a law professor at the University of Kentucky. The host is Bill Goodman, and the live program welcomes telephone calls and electronic messages.
