AnnotationsProhibition by this section of use of public information for "other political campaign purposes", as applied in this case, placed an impermissible burden on protected speech and is struck down for being overbroad. Provision in this statute which prohibits use of information for harrassment purposes is held to be so vague as to be constitutionally infirm and is therefore struck down. Fowler v. Neb. Account. and Disclosure Comm., 213 Neb. 462, 330 N.W.2d 136 (1983).
