The rotten barrel


To the Editor:

A U.S. judge in Alexandria, Virginia has ruled that the campaign finance law banning corporations from making contributions to federal candidates is unconstitutional, saying that a recent Supreme Court decision gives companies the same right to donate as individual citizens.

The Roberts Supreme Court ruled three years ago that “personhood” was really a noun and not an adjective, thus advancing the political and economic agenda of large corporations. The Supreme Court should be bastions of justice for all Americans, regardless of wealth or influence.

At this point, the barrel is rotten and so are all the apples in it.
