Allan Powell: Citizens United decision is a two-year-old monster
The Citizens United Supreme Court decision is now two years old. The majority opinion of five ultra-conservative justices shows their determination to advance the power and wealth of corporations. They gave this awesome gift by affirming that corporations are persons with protected free speech expressed in the form of money. It took precious little time for this decision to prove the fears predicted: It opened the floodgates of money to further corrupt elections. This decision will “live in infamy” until it is overturned.
