The Supreme Court Ruling on Campaign Finance

 

Last week in a 5-4 decision in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission,  the Supreme Court ruled under the First Amendment, the government may not ban political spending by corporations and unions in candidate elections, radically changing campaign finance law. Co-host and Attorney J. Craig Williams welcomes Professor Ned Foley, Professor of Law at Ohio State University’s Moritz College of Law and Professor Adam Winkler, Professor of Law at UCLA School of Law,  to discuss this Supreme Court ruling and the impact this ruling will have on state, judicial and legislative elections.
