Joining me on Episode 2 of the ELB Podcast is the nation’s leading First Amendment lawyer, Floyd Abrams. Floyd was one of the lawyers arguing in the Supreme Court in the 2010 case, Citizens United v. FEC, which freed corporate and labor union spending in elections.
Is more money in elections good or bad for our democracy? Would it be better to lift all limits on money in elections? What is the Supreme Court doing in the area of free speech? What of the new decision in Reed v. Town of Glibert? And what of academics and their views of the First Amendment?
I would love your feedback on this new endeavor!
