Struggling to comprehend all the hubbub about campaign finance?
A forum at 7:30 tonight at Plymouth Congregational Church, 925 Vt., is designed to help people put the issue in perspective. The session, "Campaign Finance from Lawrence to Washington," will be in the church's Mayflower Room. It is free and open to the public.
Guest speakers will be Topeka lawyer John Frieden, who ran an unsuccessful campaign in 1996 against Rep. Jim Ryun; state Rep. Ralph Tanner, a Baldwin Republican and vice chair of the House Committee on Government Organizations and Elections; and Allan Cigler, professor of political science at Kansas University.
