I won't go into detail -- I just ask you to think about it.
On the one hand, we have Mitch McConnell's and three Republican appointees to the FEC efforts to backstop action by the FEC against a real estate baron in New York state who used threats against Democrats who were making contributions to their party.
On the other hand, we have the case pushed forward to September by the US Supreme Court. It's the case which deals with whether a right-wing film made to discredit Hillary Clinton could be shown during the final weeks of her campaign. The basic issue is whether corporate money can be unleashed to affect campaigns.
In both cases, we have what may be the death-knell to any control over corporate support for politicians and political groups. No, I mean really threaten our democracy, pure and simple. Think about liberating bullies on the right like the real estate wingnut in New York with his corporate dollars? What do you think of unplugging corporate contributions to pro-corporate politicians and their party.
Go read the stories and think about it. Gotta go.
