ABSTRACT
The article discusses the U.S. Democratic Party in relation to campaign financing, independent expenditure political action committees (super PACs), and the U.S. Supreme Court's decision in the Citizens United case which reportedly overturned a restriction which prevented corporations and others from raising unlimited amounts of money for political candidates. The Democrat-oriented House Majority PAC is mentioned, along with the U.S. Democratic Party's decision to embrace the use of super PACs.
