Ironically, this week the United States Supreme Court handed down a decision in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, effectively removing the restrictions on political spending by unions and corporations, even in federal candidate races. This historic decision expressly extended these new freedoms to nonprofits. The essence of this historic decision is that regardless of corporate structure, the First Amendment right to speak is inviolate. (This recent, far reaching decision may alter the court's thinking in regard to ATRF and Contempt IV, but that is an issue for another day.) It is more than a little ironic that now corporations, including nonprofits, can spend any amount they wish supporting a candidate or measure; unions can now spend as much on politics as they wish; wealthy people can spend as much as they wish; and apparently even foreigners can spend freely on American politics, if they wish. There is only one person in the United States who cannot spend money on politics, Bill Sizemore. Under this court's order, Bill Sizemore cannot spend any money whatsoever on politics.
