But restricting campaign financing seems to restrict freedom of speech, because money buys speech in political campaigns. Since you’re a law professor, you must be far more acutely aware of the free speech implications of election funding than I am. Where can I find a discussion of this problem?

As I write this, I have just discovered the Wikipedia article on Buckley v. Valeo, but I’m still looking for additional information on this.
