lorenlal writes “The Supreme Court of the United States must have figured that restrictions on corporate support of candidates was a violation of free speech, or something like that.” From the AP story linked above:
“By a 5-4 vote, the court on Thursday overturned a 20-year-old ruling that said corporations can be prohibited from using money from their general treasuries to pay for campaign ads. The decision, which almost certainly will also allow labor unions to participate more freely in campaigns, threatens similar limits imposed by 24 states.”
