ABSTRACT
The author offers his insight on campaign finance law debate on the Supreme Court case Citizens United v. Federal Elections Commission (FEC) in the U.S. He describes the decision of Citizens United that restrictions on corporate electioneering in federal elections are unconstitutional. He notes the court's explanation that corporate differential regulation cannot be justified as the government is only interested in preventing apparent or actual corruption.
