Barring Medicaid providers from making campaign contributions in Ohio is unconstitutional, the 6th Circuit ruled, noting that the many honest providers outweigh any "attenuated concern about a relative handful of providers who do" commit fraud.

The challenge arose from nine physicians who tried to make campaign contributions to Richard Cordray's 2010 re-election campaign for attorney general.
