A Catalyst For Fair Elections?

The National Journal's blog "Under the Influence" has a posting today with Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) discussing the impending U.S. Supreme Court decision on Citizens United vs. FEC and why it could be the impetus for Fair Elections campaign reform.

 

"It takes a major scandal to create a major reform," Durbin said. "I don't know that we've reached the level in the Senate or in the nation where people are going to demand this of us.... But if they think that the Supreme Court has tipped the scales so dramatically that they don't have a fighting chance any more, they may be open to this."
