Sarbanes rips SCOTUS’s campaign finance ruling

Listen to this article

Activists at McKeldin Square in Baltimore’s Inner Harbor demonstrated Wednesday in response to SCOTUS campaign finance ruling. The Supreme Court struck down total limits on individual campaign contributions.

The ruling, by a 5 to 4 vote, extends the right of fat-cats donors, like the Koch Brothers and Sheldon Adelson, to dominate contributions to candidates in any given election cycle.

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) warned the decision could lead “to an oligarchic form of society, which will control our political process.”

Justice Stephen Breyer, said: “Where enough money calls the tune, the public will not be heard.”

Sharing their views on the video on this  controversial decision and what the public can do about it, are: Rep. John Sarbanes (3rd-D), activists Charlie Cooper (Get Money Out of – Maryland), and Jennifer Bevan-Dangel (Common Cause of Maryland.)
