UPDATED: The Democratic Party Platform calls for Constitutional amendment to reverse Citizens United and to enable campaign finance reform.

The presidential call for a Constitutional amendment comes more that two and a half years after the 5-4 Supreme Court decision overturned decades of law to free up corporations to dominate elections, and several months after the 5-4 Court denied the rights of the people in Montana and other states to regulate corporate spending in elections.
What now? Which Amendment and why? My July 2012 Senate testimony explores these questions and more.
