Early life and education
Babka was born in Cleveland, Ohio in 1968 to James Sr. and Joyce Babka. He was raised in Twinsburg Ohio. His mother died in a car accident in May 1978. He attended the University of Akron[self-published source?] where he majored in political science and minored in business management.
Babka was the press secretary for Libertarian Party presidential candidate Harry Browne in 2000. He also worked as a paid consultant for Libertarian Bill Redpath in his run for Virginia Governor in 2001.
Babka was named the President of RealCampaignReform.org, a project to oppose the McCain-Feingold campaign finance reform, which ultimately passed as the Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act of 2002. Immediately, Babka went to work with his attorneys to organize a group of plaintiffs to challenge the law. Congressman Ron Paul was the lead plaintiff, making their case, Paul v. FEC. RealCampaignReform.org was joined by Gun Owners of America, Citizens United, Massachusetts candidates Carla Howell and Michael Cloud, and others.
