Corruption in the Political System

By Russ Feingold

Josh Rolnick, The Sh'ma Institute, January 2012

On January 21, 2010, the U.S. Supreme Court handed down one of the most lawless decisions in its history: Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission. In one fell swoop, the court overturned nearly 100 years of settled laws that had limited the ways that corporations could influence our democracy. Now, more than at any other point in my lifetime, I have grave concerns about the integrity of our election process. So, as the 2012 election cycle approaches, we must join together to demand both transparency and accountability from our elected officials.
