United Citizens vs. Citizens United

Here’s an update on the Wisconcin march against the Citizens United decision. Great news, and a great video. I live in NJ, so I couldn’t make it, but I wanted to at least offer them congratulations. I’m currently looking for anything similar on the East Coast.

The video is great. The guy really sums the problem up well, plus he’s kinda funny. The “Fee Speech” line was the best.

Here’s a link to their facebook page. And here’s a link to their website. 

Hundreds braved sub-freezing temperatures and stiff winds to take part in the February 16, 2010 demonstration protesting the U.S. Supreme Court’s election financing decision in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission. The event started with a rally on the front steps of the State Capitol before continuing with a march to the nearby federal courthouse. Many of the participants then returned to the Capitol to deliver statements to their state legislators urging them to support Democracy Campaign-backed reform legislation. Video and pictures here.

    Bill Moyers did a fine program about this tonight, from the perspective of judicial elections. He reran segments of a ’99 show in which he interviewed Kennedy and Breyer. And it was stunning to hear Kennedy talk about the toxic danger of money in politics, because (as you well know), Kennedy wrote the majority opinion in Citizens United.
