Larson Statement on Supreme Court Ruling on Citizens United

Statement

Location: Washington, DC

Congressman John Larson (CT-01), one of the leading advocates for comprehensive campaign finance reform in the House, released the following statement on the Supreme Court decision to affirm the Citizens United ruling:

"I am deeply disappointed that, after seeing how harmful the torrent of unregulated, undisclosed, secret money they unleashed with Citizens United, the same five Justices have decided to double down and prevent states from acting to protect our elections when there is a clear cut need.

"Montana's law was based on hard learned lessons from a time when their "Copper Kings' owned the state government lock, stock and barrel. For a hundred years it served to protect the state from the excesses we're seeing all too clearly across the country today.

Unfortunately, now it's just a race to the bottom to see how long it takes today's copper kings from reasserting their control."
