Free Speech and Government Corruption (12:00PM)
The US Supreme Court has ordered Montana to abolish historic limits on campaign contributions to comply with its 2010 Citizens United decision. Montana says, “No,” insisting that money is already corrupting state politics for the first time in 100 years. Reformers claim Citizens United created this year’s Super PAC’s and billion-dollar campaigns funded by corporations and wealthy people. Will the Supreme Court take another look, or are “reformers” trying to impose limits on free speech they just don’t like?
