Seems like every time I do research for an article I run across people pursuing the same premise. Once again, Annie Leonard delivers. I’ll have a follow up later this week.
Of particular interest in this peice is the call for a Constitutional amendment that would reverse Citizens United. Leonard states:
A constitutional amendment won’t solve all the problems with corporate influence of our democracy, but it is a great place to start. If the Citizens United decision stands unchallenged, elections will be no more than auctions, with political offices available to the highest bidder, and unavailable to those who prioritize public – rather than corporate – interests.
