- Long Island Action
Join MovetoAmend-Brookhaven at the TOB Board Meeting to voice support for reversing the Citizen’s United decision and to regulate money in elections. Sign up before 5:00 pm to speak at the public portion, or attend in support of the speakers.
The Citizens United v. FEC Supreme Court decision in January 2010 reversed a hundred-year precedent of Congressional authority to regulate federal elections. It ruled corporations are people and money is speech, and corporations’ speech with money cannot be regulated. It opened the floodgates of unlimited, secret and unaccountable donations in the election process, and has resulted in our current compromised election process.
