Citizens United Hysteria Watch, Vol. 1
September 8, 2010
Remember the U.S. Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision? The one that was supposed to generate a tsunami of corporate cash in political races? The one that put a giant “for sale” sign on legislatures, courts and capitals across America? Well, as of September 1, according to a USA Today report not a single company surveyed plans to spend corporate money to run independent ads calling for the election or defeat of any candidate. Zilch. Nada. Zippo.
