    With generous support from the Thornburg Foundation, our speaker this year is Trevor Potter.  Mr. Potter is the founder and President of Campaign Legal Center and a former Chairman of the Federal Election Commission.  He is one of the country's most prominent and experienced campaign and election lawyers.  He is also a Senior Adviser to the reform group Issue One, as well as head of the political law practice at the Washington firm of Caplin & Drysdale.  To many, he is perhaps best known for his appearances on the Colbert Report as the lawyer for Stephen Colbert's Super PAC, Americans for a Better Tomorrow, Tomorrow, during the 2012 election.

    Mr. Potter has been described by the American Bar Association Journal as "hands-down one of the top lawyers in the country on the delicate intersection of politics, law and money."  Mr. Potter was appointed to the FEC in 1991 by President George H.W. Bush, and then served as general counsel to John McCain's 2008 and 2000 presidential campaigns.  He was a member of the legal team that successfully defended the McCain-Feingold reform law in the Supreme Court, prior to the Citizens United decision.
