Supreme Court Scratching Corporate Backs
Please don’t let Dupont, ExxonMobile, and Monsanto buy our next President.

In opening the floodgates for corporate money in election campaigns, the Supreme Court did not simply engage in a brazen power grab. It did so in an opinion stunning in its intellectual dishonesty.
It was unnecessary for the court to go so far when there were several less-radical grounds available. It was audacious to seize the opportunity to overrule precedents when the parties had not pressed this issue and the lower courts had not considered it. It was the height of activism to usurp the judgments of Congress and state legislatures about how best to prevent corruption of the political process.

“It will undoubtedly help Republican candidates since corporations have generally supported Republican candidates more.”
