Statement of Attorney General Martha Coakley on Supreme Court's Decision to Strike Down Montana Campaign Finance Law and Uphold "Citizens United"

“The voices of individual voters will continue to be drowned out if corporations are allowed to spend billions in unreported and unaccounted funds to influence elections. This decision is further proof that we cannot rely on the courts to reverse this unrestricted flow of money and that the only solution is to pass a constitutional amendment to make clear that corporate spending is not considered free speech.” - Attorney General Martha Coakley
