March 24, 2009 · Hillary: The Movie, a slashing critique of then-Sen. Hillary Clinton, is taking center stage Tuesday at the U.S. Supreme Court, where the film's producers are using it to challenge the McCain-Feingold campaign finance law.That means the producing organization must publicly disclose who paid for the movie, and any broadcast ad must have a tag line disclosing the sponsoring organization and disclaiming any connections to any candidate's campaign. In addition, the court said, the movie could not be broadcast 30 days before a primary election.
But that doesn't mean that a movie like this couldn't be shown, says Scott Nelson, who represents Sens. John McCain and Russ Feingold.
"There's no prohibition on running any kind of political advertising," he says. "It's just a question of how it's funded."
