End Citizens United Raises Their Funds From Small-dollar Donors

Posted on June 6, 2018

The American political culture has been faced with a lot of controversies over the years with many court cases challenging the rules around the political arena. One such controversial issue came to light on in 2008 when a group called Conservative United aired a 90-minute long advertisement attacking Hillary Clinton while she was still a candidate. The federal laws of that time, however, required that every organization running a political ad must reveal the people that pay it and also reveal its cost.

The Conservative United group then went to court to have the court overrule this law by the Federal Election Commission (FEC) but the courts ruled against the Conservative United. However, two years later the United States Supreme Court overturned the previous federal court ruling and upended a century of finance case law that extended the right of free speech to corporations. This ruling took away the ability of the government to place limitations on what organizations can do influence election outcomes.

End Citizens United also believed that the involvement of such organizations in the political sphere tipped the balance of power and was an avenue through which the wealthy individuals got an opportunity to have favors extended to them by their ‘preferred candidate.’
