Different perspectives on Citizen's United

Seth takes a far more measured reading of the decision than you'll find elsewhere over at Enik Rising,

Even though there's really no evidence that these contributions are corrupting elected officials, there is definitely an appearance of corruption. And it does erode faith in democracy. This decision will likely worsen that. But I see no need to combat the appearance of corruption with the appearance of regulation.

and Andrew Oh-Willeke gives us a detailed analysis of the decision's impact on state law in Colorado and what options are still available to reformers.
