KUSA – Political-advocacy group Citizens United is suing Colorado Secretary of State Scott Gessler over the conservative group’s desire to be exempt from state-election finance laws.
Citizens United, the namesake of the 2010 controversial landmark Supreme Court decision that opened the floodgates to unlimited corporate political spending, plans to release an “expose” documentary, “Rocky Mountain Heist,” on the influence of political groups in Colorado.
The suit claims the Virginia-based group has a “First Amendment right to engage in political expression and media activities on the same terms as other media entities.”
