Today’s ballot Initiatives in Montana & Colorado on Citizens United and the 28th Amendment

“Spreading like a Montana prairie fire . . .”

Montana and Colorado citizens will have a chance vote against Citizens United v. FEC and to move the 28th Amendment effort forward. Nine states (and several hundred cities and towns) have declared their opposition to Citizens United and corporate Constitutional rights, and their support for the 28th Amendment.

Both Montana and Colorado have initiatives on their ballots that would declare as a matter of state policy support for a Constitutional amendment to reverse Citizens United and to restore the traditional power of the states to prevent the corruption and inequality of unlimited election spending by corporations, unions, and the extraordinarily wealthy.

Here’s more on the Montana initiative, I-166: Stand With Montanans

And here’s more on the Colorado initiative 65: Vote Yes on 65

Voters in Chicago,  Massachusetts and other cities and towns across the country will also have the chance to vote for the 28th Amendment to overturn Citizens United.

And here’s the Democratic Governor (Brian Schweitzer) and Republican Lt. Governor (John Bohlinger) explaining why they will be voting YES on I-166 and the 28th Amendment.
