The Republicans' five employees on the Supreme Court have put their thumb on the scale for the GOP just in time for the midterms.
Per Rick Hasen, in the Citizens United case, the conservatives on the Supreme Court have reached down to decide a question that wasn't even properly before the court, and overturned the ban on corporate electioneering in Austin v. Michigan Chamber of Commerce. Corporations are now free to spend as much as they want to influence elections, including running their own ads, sending out mailings, and doing GOTV. The only limit left is they still can't donate directly to candidates - a limitation I am curious about. If corporate money is essential to free speech, why aren't corporate campaign donations? I await the case overturning that ban, too.
