• James Bopp Jr. and Craig Holman Debate Citizens United

    With a price tag of $6 billion, the 2012 election was by far the most expensive to date. The rapid influx of cash into our elections was made possible by the Supreme Court's controversial Citizens United vs. FEC ruling, which paved the way for unlimited corporate contributions and the creation of Super PAC's. At this event, James Bopp Jr. and Paul Sherman defended the court's decision, while Craig Holman and Jamin Raskin advocated for an amendment to overturn Citizens United vs. FEC. As an attorney James Bopp Jr. has fought against campaign finance reform and was one of the minds behind the Citizens United decision. His reputation has given him the nickname "Public enemy #1 for fair elections"
