A Dozen Wisconsin Communities Challenge Corporate Personhood With Vote to Overturn Citizens United

Deirdre Fulton, staff writer

Wisconsin residents in 12 communities will vote next week on whether to amend the U.S. Constitution to overturn Citizens United, end corporate personhood, and get big money out of politics.

In Citizens United v. the Federal Election Commission, the U.S. Supreme Court found that corporations have a First Amendment right to spend unlimited amounts of money to influence the outcome of elections.
