Campaign Finance Laws Restrict Free Speech

The First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution says “Congress shall make no law abridging the freedom of speech,” but campaign-finance laws actually restrict the right of citizens to speak out.  IJ attorneys Steve Simpson and Paul Sherman are campaign-finance experts who litigate free speech cases across the country.  In this podcast, they give a brief history of campaign finance laws, Citizens United and Speechnow.org.
