For Libertarian nominee Gary Johnson, the money will roll right in from former Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic.
“I just gave the maximum contribution to @GovGaryJohnson presidential campaign,” Novoselic tweeted Tuesday. The maximum individual contribution permitted under federal law is $2,700.
According to public records, Novoselic previously donated to a series of predominantly Democratic candidates and organizations. He also gave to Virginia Libertarian congressional candidate William Redpath in 2010 and independent Pennsylvania candidate Nicholas Troiano in 2014. He also donated to Ron Paul in 2007 as the then-Texas congressman with libertarian leanings ramped up his bid for the Republican nomination.
Novoselic then tweeted a link to a blog post written last Thursday in which he laid out his thoughts on the landmark 2010 Citizens United case and the history of campaign finance law in general.
“The best one can do to serve democracy is to understand and study issues,” he wrote in the nearly 3,700-word treatise. “Don’t believe the hype about Citizens United. It was a good ruling that protected the right of people to hear information without the government picking and choosing who could speak.
