Millions of reasons to revisit Citizens United
In a few days, the U.S. Supreme Court will announce a decision that could have a profound impact on America’s future — and, no, it’s not about health care reform.
The case, American Tradition Partnership, Inc. v. Bullock, is better known as “the Montana case.” The court is being asked to overturn a 5-2 decision of the Montana Supreme Court that ruled that state elections in Montana are so fraught with the potential for corruption that strict campaign finance laws must be enforced.
The Montana court ruled that the U.S. Supreme Court’s 2010 decision in Citizens United v. FEC applies to federal elections, not Montana elections. Citizens United held that corporations were, in effect, people and could contribute unlimited amounts to elections.
