WASHINGTON, D.C. – An advocacy group dedicated to fighting “the cycle of corruption” in politics is planning a rally outside the U.S. Supreme Court tomorrow at noon to urge the court to reconsider the “Citizens United” decision that paved the way for unlimited political spending by corporations and unions.
Earlier this year, Montana’s Supreme Court issued an decision that goes against the federal court’s ruling by upholding a state law prohibiting corporate contributions to political candidates and parties. While that decision only applies to state elections in Montana – and it is currently on hold thanks to a stay by the federal Supreme Court – it does give the highest court in the land an opportunity to re-consider its 2010 ruling.
The “Citizens United” decision determined that portions of a 2002 campaign finance law violated First Amendment free speech protections and struck down restrictions on political spending by corporations and unions.
The rally is being organized by the Coffee Party USA. For more information, visit http://coffeepartyusa.com/citizens-united-redo
