Top Court to Hear 'Hillary' Campaign Finance Case

Ad Feedback

The Supreme Court is considering Wednesday overturning laws that restrict corporations and unions from donating to political campaigns.

The focus of the case is on "Hillary the Movie," a 90 minute film attacking Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's presidential run produced by a non-profit organization.
    
A federal judge said the movie was a campaign ad and couldn't air. Now the Supreme Court is using the case to take a second look at current campaign finance laws.

"That an era of AIG and Exxon, that their cooperate treasuries could be opened up to destroy the political process...this is a very bizarre time," said Sen. Russell Feingol (D-WI).
 
Theodore Olsen Attorney representing Citizens United said, "The right to speak has never been calibrated to how powerful you are or what the size of your bank account is, because the government can't license speech based on a person's bank account."

The focus will be on conservative justices John Roberts and Samuel Alito and their willingness to overturn earlier decisions on campaign spending.
