Alan Grayson: McConnell Smiled At Citizens United Decision


By FZ - Posted on 28 July 2010

Representative Alan Grayson talks about Citizens United and what it means for the country. From panel: Undoing Citizens United: A Comprehensive Plan to Prevent Corporations from Buying Elections SAT, 07/24/2010 - 10:15AM, Brasilia 6 If you think corporations have too much influence in politics, just wait. In January, the Supreme Court ruled 5-4 that giant corporations can pour money directly into elections. They can spend billions on attack ads and robocalls to support or oppose candidates, all the while avoiding disclosure. Progressives cannot let this stand. The panel will present the full spectrum of remedies to Citizens United—including federal, state and local legislation to restrict corporate spending in elections, public financing of campaigns and a constitutional amendment—and a plan for implementing them. PANELISTS: Marge Baker, Rep. Donna F. Edwards, Lisa Graves, Robert Weissman, Representative Alan Grayson
