CORVALLIS, Ore. - It's the fifth anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court's "Citizens United" ruling, and some Oregonians have been working for five years to counteract it.
The ruling removed limits on the amount of money that corporations, associations and unions can spend on political campaigns.
U.S. Rep. Kurt Schrader said Wednesday it may be only a matter of time, based on its latest decision, before the U.S. Supreme Court drops all limits on federal campaign contributions.
Based on Wednesday’s decision and a 2010 case, Schrader said, “the court is gearing up for taking away all contribution limits to candidates. Then it’s going to be even worse, when a sugar daddy who wants to fund your campaign — or fund one against you — can spend unlimited amounts of money.”
Local critics plan on Monday to show their disapproval of a recent U.S. Supreme Court decision overturning some limits on federal campaign contributions.
A sign-waving demonstration is planned from 5 to 6:30 p.m. Sponsors have asked participants to gather at Liberty Street NE and Court Street. When the group gets large enough, some will move to Commercial Street NE and Court Street, and others may go to the foot of the Marion Street Bridge.
