Free Speech Again Preserved With Van Hollen Loss

Washington, DC — Citizens United President David N. Bossie issued the following statement on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia’s reversal of a lower court’s decision forcing nonprofits to disclose their donors.

“The First Amendment was again preserved today when the D.C. Court of Appeals ruled against a lawsuit stifling free speech pushed by DCCC chief Rep. Chris Van Hollen,” said David N. Bossie, President of Citizens United. “Van Hollen’s wayward quest floundered in the Court of Appeals because its sole purpose was to chill free speech and help incumbent politicians win re-election. That is why liberals continue to lose when they bring these frivolous lawsuits to the courts: free speech always wins in the end.”
