Repeal Citizens United
To the Editor: In January, the New Hampshire House of Representatives will consider SB 136, which forms a committee to study endorsing a U.S. Constitutional amendment to repeal Citizens United.
The Supreme Court's Citizens United decision opened the floodgates to huge amounts of money from secret sources flowing into our election system. We see the results in the negative Super Pac ads funded by outside special interests. This money corrupts our political system.
New Hampshire should pass a resolution to amend the Constitution and end this corruption. Sixteen states have already done so and others are considering.
Please urge your representatives to vote in support of SB 136 when it comes up for a vote in January.
