Constitutional amendment needed to state money is not speech: Letter to the Editor

January 14, 2016

Jan. 21 marks the sad sixth anniversary of the Citizens United Supreme Court decision, when the Court's majority pronounced "independent expenditures, including those made by corporations, do not give rise to corruption or the appearance of corruption ... and ... will not cause the electorate to lose faith in our democracy."

Dreaming and working for a real democracy after Citizens United ruling: (opinion)

January 21, 2015

It's a cruel irony that the very week our nation celebrates the life and work for justice and equality of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., our country also marks mark the 5th anniversary of the Citizens United v. FEC Supreme Court decision that diminished political justice and equality.

The controversial decision, issued Jan. 21, 2010, broadened the rights of corporate entities and individuals to donate (or, more appropriately, invest) in political elections. Its promises of expanding democracy and greater quality and diversity in political discourse have gone unfulfilled.
