• Free Press Publications
On April 2, the U.S. Supreme Court issued a 5-4 ruling in the case of McCutcheon v Federal Election Commission. The ruling struck down a federal law that restricts how much money a donor may contribute in total to all candidates or committees. There is much vocal misreporting of this decision. Jim Babka from Downsize DC reports, “Like Citizens United before it, the shrieking needs to be misleading to work. The exaggeration and outright lying has already begun. The ever-shrill Common Cause alleged that, The Supreme Court just... gaveled in a new era of political corruption made it easier to bribe politicians The truth is, the McCutcheon decision was actually pretty mundane.”
