A One-Sided Debate

James Bopp (who argued on behalf of Citizens United in front of the Supreme Court) “debated” David Cobb, national spokesperson for Move to Amend, Monday night at Indiana University. Cobb presented a clear and compelling rationale for ending the constitutional doctrines that corporations are “persons” and political money should be defined as political speech through the We the People Amendment.

Bopp was not so convincing — claiming at one point that ALL limits on political campaisn contributions/investments should be eliminating. As if MORE money in elections over the last few years has produced MORE democracy.
