For those who worry that Weintraub
might be too sympathetic to the
authors of the new campaign finance
law, she makes it clear that she has
empathy for those who must navigate
their way through the arcane regula-
tions that took effect in November —
regulations that did everything from
banning soft money to restricting
minors from contributing to political
"I really feel for regulated members
of the community and their lawyers
who are sitting there with these vol-
umes of paper on their desk trying to
assimilate all this and trying to figure
out what we did," explained
Weintraub, who — when she is not
being addressed as "Chair" — answers
to a less formal title, "Mom."

She and her husband, Bill Dauster, a
legislative aide for Sen. Russell
Feingold, D-Wis., married in 1986 .
when they were both working as
lawyers in New York.
Having found their calling in the
world of politics, the couple now
