With Cross-Partisan Support for Constitutional Amendment on Citizens United, Delaware Becomes State #15

both parties to blameA big week in the growing movement of Americans across the political spectrum to overturn Citizens United, and it’s only Tuesday. Yesterday, Public Citizen announced that Delaware, the state of incorporation for many of the largest corporations, has become the 15th State to call for the 28th amendment to the U.S. Constitution. A majority of the Delaware legislature, including Democrats and Republicans, signed this letter.

Then, today Free Speech For People rolled out a report documenting the votes and statements of more than 100 Republican lawmakers across the country who have stepped up to challenge Citizens United and support the 28th Amendment. To those who know this effort crosses all political lines, this may not seem news, but the mainstream media have mistakenly tended to consider opposition to Citizens United through the partisan lens with which they are so comfortable. This report may help set right that mistake.
