Justice Stevens’ Reasoned Takedown of Citizens United

May 31, 2012by Jeremy Leaming

At some point perhaps soon the U.S. Supreme Court’s conservative wing will have to reckon with some of its sweeping assertions in its controversial 2010 Citizens United v. FEC majority opinion.

Retired Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens in a methodical, thoughtful speech at the University of Arkansas Clinton School of Public Services detailed why he thinks some of the holding in Citizens United is due for reconsideration.

Further proof that being a Cubs fan does not impair one’s ability to reason well. Justice Stevens was right to retire, but we miss him. Citizen’s United is one of the worst things to ever happen to American electoral politics.
