Obama Deplores Use of Special Interest Money in Politics

The Supreme Court ruling in Citizens United vs. Federal Election Commission allows corporations to spend unlimited corporate funds on their own electoral messages. The same Supreme Court decision also sets a precedent for freeing labor unions to spend unlimited union funds on their electoral messages.

President Obama ain’t happy, complaining, “with its ruling today, the Supreme Court has given a green light to a new stampede of special interest money in our politics.”

Wait a minute… Didn’t presidential candidate Barack Obama reject public campaign financing and instead, finance his entire campaign with special interest money?
