In spite of the BCRA ban on party soft money, soft money managed to find its way back into the political system, mainly through “527” organizations.

Shortly after the 2004 elections, bipartisan legislation to bring “527” organizations within campaign finance laws was introduced in the U.S. House and Senate.
