ABC’s Diane Sawyer is no fan of the Supreme Court decision on campaign finance. She said Thursday on her “World News” report that the ruling opens the “floodgates for companies and unions to spend all the money they want attacking political candidates.”
The U.S. Supreme Court’s decision on Thursday to loosen corporate restrictions on campaign finance didn’t sit well with the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe, an international human rights coalition of 56 European nations, but somehow we doubt that the top court’s conservative justices are going to lose sleep over that particular critique. Oh, and certain members of the American media didn’t like SCOTUS’ ruling either.
The Washington Post:
The head of its office that monitors democratic practices says the ruling effectively lifting limits on election spending by corporations and unions “threatens to further marginalize candidates without strong financial backing or extensive personal resources.”
