U.S. Supreme Court Won’t Hear Case Over Ban on Campaign Donations by Corporations

Published on February 25, 2013, by in General.

On February 25, the U.S. Supreme Court refused to hear Danielczyk v U.S., 12-579. The Fourth Circuit had upheld the federal law that makes it illegal for corporations to make campaign contributions, and the U.S. Supreme Court won’t disturb the Fourth Circuit ruling.

    A man walks into a supermarket with only a ten dollar bill in his pocket.

    Oops. Never mind. When you got back to your car after grocery shopping, there was a bottle of Bombay Sapphire sitting in the front passenger seat — probably courtesy of the faceless character who had slipped you a twenty dollar bill the last time you were in the supermarket.

    Citizens United is great…

    …and it wasn’t even coordinated. The faceless guy somehow just knew you wanted some gin.

    Baron, if you were a member of Congress, would you give favorable treatment (when you vote as a member of Congress, or introduce bills) to various people depending on how much money those people had given you? Or would you just follow your conscience and your ideas of good public policy?

    What’s your point, Richard? Mine is simple…saying that allowing corporations to foot the bill of a candidate’s adverts is not supporting the candidate…just because it’s not “coordinated”…is utter bullshit. Tell me it’s not bullshit.
