Letter: First Amendment applies only to people

May 23, 2019

The May 6 op-ed “Government shouldn’t dictate views we’re allowed to hear” by Bradley Smith presented a false choice of what to trust — the proposed 28th Amendment or the First Amendment.

Move to Amend’s proposed We the People Amendment (House Joint Resolution 48) declares that “artificial entities such as corporations do not have constitutional rights” and that political election spending “is not free speech.”

Ohio Lawmakers Propose Bill to Challenge Supreme Court Decision on Election Spending

May 8, 2019

Two Democratic state lawmakers say there’s too much untraceable money in political campaigns, so they want Ohio to do more to fight a U.S. Supreme Court decision on corporate spending on elections.


State Sen. Nickie Antonio (D-Lakewood) doesn't think corporations are people and money is free speech, as in the 2010 Citizens United decision. Antonio plans a bill that would force a court challenge to that, much like Republican lawmakers did when they passed the so-called Heartbeat Bill to take on the 1973 ruling on abortion in Roe v Wade.
