Citizens United Legalized Corruption

Betsy DeVos, newly-minted Secretary of Education, used to run two special interest groups. One of those groups fell afoul of Ohio state campaign finance laws by funneling hundreds of thousands of dollars into the state to influence an election.

Before Citizens United, when the incident occurred, this was illegal. Today, in the post-Citizens United world, it probably would have been legal.

Citizens United legalized behavior that was once considered illegal and corruptive. It’s time we reversed this decision and restore some common sense to our campaign finance system.
