  • Increased Corporate Influence in Politics?

    I didn't think American politics could get any worse... apparently I was wrong.
    The 2012 presidential campaign is already being shaped by new rules for political money. The Supreme Court's Citizens United ruling allows corporations to jump into the presidential contest, as lower-court rulings and the Federal Election Commission provide new avenues through which corporate money can flow.

    The likely result: Corporate involvement in presidential politics on a scale not seen since the Watergate scandal of the 1970s. The critical difference: This time, it's legal.

    As a person who thinks there should be strong restrictions on political campaign spending this report comes as a shock to me.
