Ellison sponsors Get Corporate Money Out of Politics Amendment (12/7/11)

12/28/11

Congressman Keith Ellison is sponsoring the Get Corporate Money out of Politics Amendment. His amendment would overturn the disastrous Citizens United Supreme Court decision. Ellison's Amendment states: Because of the compelling public interest in preventing corruption and the appearance of corruption among elected officials, and because corporations and other business organizations are not natural persons or citizens, Congress and the States may regulate the disbursement of funds for political activity by for-profit corporations, other for-profit business entities, or other business organizations, without regard to whether or not the activity is carried out independently from any candidate or political party. - 12/7/11
