ABSTRACT
The article discusses the impact of the U.S. Supreme Court's decision in the case Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission in 2010. It infers that the Court's ruling on corporate personhood has resulted in the use of large amounts of untraceable money for political advertisements. Critics say that the Court's decision to remove private funding limits for election campaigns sets a negative precedent and opens candidates to be influenced by corporations and rich individuals.
