'We Will Only Get Louder': Dozens of Communities Vote to Boot Big Money from Politics

November 6, 2014

Huge margins back up claim that 'nearly all Americans share the sentiment that corporations should not have the same rights as people'

Citizens in dozens of communities voted overwhelmingly on Tuesday for their legislators to pass a constitutional amendment to overturn the Supreme Court’s Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission decision, which opened the door for the super-rich and corporations to trample democracy.

As they headed to the polls to vote in what turned out to be the most expensive midterm election in history — one in which outside money from undisclosed sources played an outsized role and the number of small individual donors shrank — voters across the country made clear their desire to end corporate personhood and get big money out of politics.
