Hope for campaign financial reform

-A A +A

To the Editor:
 For many years the League of Women Voters has supported legislation to bring about campaign finance reform.
 Two years ago, in a 5-4 U.S. Supreme Court decision (ironically, called Citizens United), corporations were given the green light to spend unlimited amounts of money in our nation’s elections. Since then, more than $4 billion has been unleashed in campaign spending by corporations, drowning out the voices of everyday citizens in our democracy.
  The dismal impact has been felt across the board, including in the Republican presidential primaries.  Senator John McCain called the Citizens United decision the worst in the history of the U.S. Supreme Court.
 Yet there is hope. Seven times in history the American people have reversed Supreme Court rulings with constitutional amendments that corrected egregious wrongs such as Citizens United.
Call your state legislators and ask them to support Representative Mimi Stewart’s House Memorial 4, and Stephen Fischmann’s Senate Memorial 3 calling upon Congress to amend the U.S Constitution and restore democracy to the American people.
