‘Citizens United’ has been misrepresented
Leftists seem to be on a crusade to, among other things, misrepresent some aspects of the Citizens United vs. Federal Election Commission U.S. Supreme Court decision.
The Citizens United organization put out on the market a video lambasting Hillary Clinton, Hillary: The Movie. The government told them it could not go on the market during an election cycle, according to the recently-passed law. So, the Citizens United organization went to court over it. And that law also illegalized any single-issue political advocacy groups (such as pro-Second Amendment groups and pro-life groups, etc. — they are incorporated, and as an incorporated entity, they certainly do demand their free-speech rights) from airing political ads during an election cycle.
Call the Citizens United group and ask to talk to a supervisor and ask about it.
I know this much about it. I don’t know about any “money” aspects about it.
