Supreme Court decision endangers democracy

newsroom@islandpacket.comApril 14, 2014 

The Supreme Court's April 2 McCutcheon decision to void overall campaign contribution limits is a disaster waiting to happen.

What world are these justices living in? They claimed in the Citizens United decision, and now in McCutcheon, that money in politics does not lead to corruption or the appearance of corruption. It certainly does.

Who is going to go against the wishes of a donor who can single-handedly finance a whole campaign?
