Bossie: “This Shameful Attempt To Alter The U.S. Constitution To Protect Incumbency Will Go Down In Flames”

Washington, DC — Citizens United President David N. Bossie released the following statement on the news today that the United States Senate will be bringing up a Constitutional Amendment that would stifle free political speech and go against the First Amendment principles set forth in Citizens United vs. FEC:

“As with the failure of the DISCLOSE Act in 2010, this shameful attempt to alter the United States Constitution to protect incumbency will go down in flames,” said David N. Bossie, President of Citizens United. “With recent polls coming out showing that Democrats in Congress face another huge midterm loss, it is not surprising that they would go back to their bag of tricks and try to defeat Citizens United and free speech. This latest attempt is laughable, Senate Democrats should focus on creating jobs not infringing on every Americans First Amendment rights.”
