May 28, 2011 by legitgov

US judge rules against corporate contribution ban 27 May 2011 A U.S. judge has ruled that the campaign finance law banning corporations from making contributions to federal candidates is unconstitutional, saying that a recent Supreme Court decision gives companies the same right to donate as individual citizens enjoy. In a ruling issued late Thursday, U.S. District Judge James Cacheris tossed out part of an indictment against two people charged with illegally reimbursing donors to two campaigns. Cacheris says that under the Supreme Court's landmark Citizens United decision last year, corporations have the right to give to federal candidates.

Miley Cyrus knocks Rick Santorum 27 May 2011 Teen pop star Miley Cyrus isn't a fan of Urban Outfitters after stories emerged alleging that the store has copied jewelry designs. She pointed out that the company's president had contributed to Santorum. "IF WE ALLOW GAY MARRIAGE NEXT THING U KNOW PEOPLE WILL BE MARRYING GOLD FISH' - Rick Santorum UO contributed $13,000 to this mans campaign" tweeted Cyrus, mocking Santorum for some earlier remarks regarding gay marriage. She also wrote about Urban Outfitters and Santorum: "Not only do they steal from artists but every time you give them money you help finance a campaign against gay equality." It may not be the best news for Santorum, who is expected to launch his campaign next week since Cyrus has over a million Twitter followers.

4 senators win promise of a Patriot Act hearing 26 May 2011 Four Democratic senators won the promise Thursday of a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing into what they say is a secret and expansive Justice Department interpretation of the information collection the Patriot Act allows.

Wyden said there is a growing gap between what the law says and what the senators call a classified interpretation of the law by the Justice Department. Udall said his constituents "would be alarmed if they knew" how the Patriot Act was being carried out.
