Democracy Day in Mentor and elsewhere probes corporate political gifts

February 7, 2017

MENTOR, Ohio -- Eleven local cities hold Democracy Days to explore the clout of corporate cash in politics.

The cities hold hearings for residents to testify about the influence of corporate donations since the 2010 Citizens United case when the U.S. Supreme Court voted 5 to 4 to wipe out the McCain-Feingold restrictions on campaign donations.
