Supreme Court Round Up Part One: McCutcheon v. FEC

“The Citizens United decision was absolutist in two ways. First, it expanded the universe of persons possessing First Amendment rights to spend money as a form of political speech, by construing the First Amendment to protect political speech by corporations for the first time. Second, the decision expanded the scope of this constitutional right by sharply limiting the compelling interests that a government can use to justify restrictions on the right to spend money during political campaigns.”
