Not-So-Free Speech

Buy a Burglar

Q: “How do you feel about the Citizens United decision, which allows corporations to spend as much as they want on campaign advertising?”

A: “I feel strongly that the court made a serious mistake in finding that money is the equivalent of protected speech. If followed out to its logical conclusion, that would have provided First Amendment protection to the Watergate burglars. They were financed with campaign contributions.”

—John Paul Stevens, former U.S. Supreme Court justice, in Belinda Luscombe, “10 Questions,” Time, Oct. 31, 2011

• Editorial Comment: In 2012: we deserve the best leadership money can buy.
