Eleven Attorneys General have written a letter calling on Congress to move a constitutional amendment to overturn the Supreme Court’s decision in Citizens United. The 5-4 Citizens United decision holds that Americans cannot limit election spending in national, state, or local elections because, according to the majority, doing so would violate corporate speech rights.
The letter to Congress calling for the 28th Amendment is signed by Attorneys General from Massachusetts, Delaware, Hawaii, Kentucky, Mississippi, Montana, New Mexico, New York, Rhode Island, Vermont and West Virginia.
The Attorneys General call for a 28th Amendment in order “to put the electoral process back where it belongs: in the hands of the people, not corporations.”
