Justices won't hear challenge to Alabama campaign law

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court won't hear a challenge to Alabama's ban on the transfer of campaign contributions between political action committees.

The justices on Monday left in place a lower court ruling that said the 2010 law does not unconstitutionally restrict political speech.

The law was challenged by the Alabama Democratic Conference, one of the state's oldest predominantly African-American political organizations.

The 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled last year that the ban is a legitimate means to prevent corruption.

The Alabama Legislature passed the ban to restrict donors' ability to hide contributions by shuffling them through multiple political action committees.
