Pascrell blasts Supreme Court

U.S. Rep. Bill Pascrell, Jr. (D-Paterson) says that the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to allow corporations and labor unions to spend money influencing federal elections is “a mistake, and a dagger in the heart of our attempts to seek cleaner elections.”

“There is nothing more sacrosanct in American democracy than maintaining the integrity of our elections,” Pascrell said.  “It is a shame that our nation’s highest court would present such a challenge to keeping special interests and corporate agendas from drowning out the voice of the people.”
