  • (1888PressRelease) July 08, 2010 - The June issue of Arizona Attorney magazine examined political campaign finance and unveiled details in a more than 100-year history of election campaign funding.

    The feature story was written by Kimberly Demarchi, a partner in Lewis and Roca's Litigation Group. Arizona Attorney magazine is available free online to anyone by visiting the magazine homepage at and clicking on the image of the magazine cover.

    Demarchi provides a perspective that takes Arizona Attorney readers on a brief journey through the evolution of the campaign election funding process. She takes us from President Theodore Roosevelt's strong opposition to corporate contributions in political elections to today's more expansive playing field sparked by this year's U.S. Supreme Court case Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission.

    "It was remarkable that a documentary made by a nonprofit corporation could alter campaign finance law so dramatically," said Tim Eigo, Arizona Attorney Editor. "But Kim shows the effect that Hillary: The Movie had, and she sets out her expectations for the future."

    The article also describes the localized impact of campaign funding through its overview of Arizona's Clean Elections system.
