On October 28, 2016 Our Speaker is Attorney Diane Post
Dealing with Citizens United
The 2010 Citizens United decision overturned 100 years of Supreme Court precedent to rule that corporations are people and money is speech. The impact to our election procedures has been devastating, as the influx of corporate money has skyrocketed. Is democracy for sale? Is it democracy? We’ll discuss the case, what it really said, and can we do about it.
