Citizens United decision only serves to preserve careers of bad politicians
The time has come for Illinois to formally support a constitutional amendment to overturn the Supreme Court’s 2008 Citizens United decision. The Citizens United decision allows for unlimited, anonymous corporate money to influence elections. There are currently 11 states that have called for such an amendment.
The logic behind the Supreme Court’s decision is that money is equivalent to free speech, and that any limit on campaign donations is a limit on free speech, and therefore a violation of the First Amendment. Because corporations have the same rights as human beings, they get to donate unlimited amounts of money.
