Oh, swell: Yet another do-gooder Outside political group has decided to use Alaska to push its aims.
This time around, it is Washington-D.C.-based “Equal Citizens” and it wants the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn its 2010 Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission decision striking down limits on corporations’ campaign expenditures. The court ruling, correctly, protected those political contributions as free speech.
The court, in its 5-4 decision, sided with a conservative nonprofit group, Citizens United, that in 2008 wanted to air “Hillary: The Movie,” a political documentary critical of Hillary Clinton — despite restrictions in 2002’s onerous Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act, or McCain-Feingold Act.
