Under current federal law, corporations are not permitted to donate to the campaigns of candidates for federal office. A few years ago, William Danielczyk was prosecuted for breaking several federal campaign finance laws. One of the charges against him is that he allowed a corporation that he controls to make a contribution. He is asking the U.S. Supreme Court to strike down the federal law that makes it illegal for corporations to donate to federal campaigns. On December 9, the government filed this brief, asking the Court not to hear Danielczyk’s appeal.
The part on pages 17-18, comparing corporations to children, is somewhat amusing. Thanks to Rick Hasen for the link.
