A retired Missouri investment executive who has given millions of dollars to campaigns has filed a lawsuit challenging a proposed ballot measure seeking to establish campaign contribution limits.

According to a Kansas City Star report on Tuesday, Rex Sinquefield argues in his lawsuit that contribution limits would infringe on constitutional rights to free speech and free association. The suit contends the proposed limits are so low they inhibit effective advocacy, particularly as political campaigns become more costly.
