Citizens United - SCOTUS

Democracy for America: The Copper Kings Return to


With a 5-4 decision the Supreme Court

allows campaigns to be bought and sold to the highest bidder

Burlington, VT Today, Democracy for America (DFA), released

the following statement after the Supreme Court on a 5-4 decision, reaffirmed

the Citizens United decision by

reversing the Montana campaign finance law.

Yet again, the Supreme Court opens up our political system to be

bought and sold by the highest bidder, said

Jim Dean, Chair of Democracy for America. In true form, the Court

overturns a hundred year old campaign finance law enabling the copper kings to

own Montana as they did years ago. In Montana

and throughout the rest of the country, big businesses and special interest

will now trump the voters.

Make no mistake; this is an on-going effort by big business to take

over our democracy. Here at DFA, well

do whatever it takes to prevent big business and those who are ethically

challenged from stealing democracy from the voters and taxpayers. Attorney General Bullock deserves tremendous

thanks for standing up to corporate power and demanding more for our country,

continued Jim Dean.

Democracy for America has taken steps

to chip awayCitizens

United, first by

collecting over 200,000 signatures supporting Sen. Bernie Sanders

Constitutional Amendment and now turning their efforts to the court.

During the campaign, DFA collected 105,640 member signatures and made over

1,200 member phone calls urging their Attorneys General to support Attorney

General Bullocks fight. DFA will continue to focus their members

passion on restricting big businesses from buying the democratic process.


Founded by Gov. Howard Dean, M.D., Democracy

for America is a people-powered Democratic Political Action Committee. With

over one million members nationwide, DFA

is a grassroots powerhouse working to change our country and the Democratic

Party from the bottom-up.
