States Against Citizens United.

The Supreme Court is being asked to reverse a state court's decision to uphold the Montana law. Virginia-based American Tradition Partnership is asking the nation's high court to rule without a hearing because the group says the state law conflicts directly with the Citizens United decision that removed the federal ban on corporate campaign spending.

They "hope" the court will reverse itself. I'm not holding my breadth. Not with this court.

1. "The states who filed the brief in support of Montana are..."

The states who filed the brief in support of Montana are New York, Arkansas, California, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Iowa, Kentucky, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Mississippi, Nevada, New Mexico, North Carolina, Rhode Island, Utah, Vermont, Washington, West Virginia and the District of Columbia.

Good on those states! (Including mine, good to see.)

This is some pretty substantial pressure on the SCOTUS. It should be interesting to see what it decides about this.
