Congressman Jim McGovern of Massachusetts (D) just introduced a bill on the House Floor to overturn Citizens United.
Of course, it wouldn’t be Congress if he didn’t find a way to take a dig at Republicans by subtly blaming them for Citizens United. But McGovern’s bill would create a constitutional amendment to overturn Citizens United and keep corporate money out of elections. Sands Casino owner Sheldon Adelson broke the record for political spending in last year’s election, plunking down $150 million to get Romney elected. Ah yes, money well spent.
Watch McGovern do his thing below.
