As the Supreme Court’s Citizens United ruling nears its second anniversary, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee has launched an online petition aimed at reversing its corrosive effects on elections. Their goal is to get 100,000 people to support a constitutional amendment barring unlimited corporate campaign contributions. “The Citizens United ruling has unleashed a flood of shadowy, corporate money into our political process,” the petition reads. “It’s an attack on our democracy.” The amendment, introduced by Senate Democrats last November, would add language to the Constitution enabling Congress and the states to regulate campaign contributions and expenditures.
