Nadler Up in Arms

Rep. Jerry Nadler said he’ll hold a hearing to “explore the full impact” of the Supreme Court’s decision on lifting the ban on corporate money in elections:

“Today, the Supreme Court recklessly overturned a longstanding precedent protecting the integrity of our electoral process.  In this one act of judicial activism, the Court has increased the role of money in elections exponentially, corrupting the process even further.  I plan to chair a hearing in the Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights and Civil Liberties in early February in order to explore the full impact of this decision.  I intend to examine the ways in which Congress might respond to ensure that our elections are not further corrupted by the influence of corporate money.”
