On October 4, 2019, the Gray Center co-hosted “The Administration of Democracy⏤The George Mason Law Review’s Second Annual Symposium on Administrative Law.” For the second annual symposium, scholars wrote papers on such fundamental questions as: Is nonpartisan campaign-finance regulation possible? Who should draw electoral maps—and how? How can we best protect voting rights? How should the census be administered? How do we preserve the regulatory process’s democratic legitimacy? And, are members of Congress entitled to see the President’s tax returns? These papers are forthcoming in the George Mason Law Review. In addition, the event featured a Keynote Conversation with two former public servants with deep expertise in both governance and campaigns: Robert Bauer, former White House Counsel to President Obama, and Donald McGahn, former White House Counsel to President Trump.

The fifth panel looked at the IRS, Congress, and the President’s tax returns, featuring a discussion of a paper titled “The President’s Tax Returns” by the University of Iowa Law School’s Professor Andy Grewal. The panel was moderated by the Gray Center’s Executive Director, Adam White. The video is available at http://administrativestate.gmu.edu/events/the-administration-of-democracy-the-george-mason-law-reviews-second-annual-symposium-on-administrative-law/.

Featuring Andy Grewal, Michael L. Stern, Kate Shaw, Elizabeth Wydra, and Adam White.

    This podcast discusses the Federal Election Commission, not the IRS or Donald Trump’s tax returns.

    In this podcast, Ciara Torres-Spelliscy claims that President Donald Trump committed a crime in his call with Ukraine President Zelenskey. Not even Adam Schiff made such a claim. At that point Professor Torres-Spelliscy lost all credibility. Sorry about that.

    Yeah, this is a repeat of 3 episodes ago, but with a new intro. Hopefully they can get it corrected.
