17. Fascinating, WTP was the plaintiff in the Citizens United decision



Though WTP's spending has been at the state level, it's best-known nationally for bringing a lawsuit that successfully challenged Montana's ban on corporate spending in elections, extending the provisions of the U.S. Supreme Court's landmark Citizens United decision to all states.



and now they've changed their name, for some reason I'm reminded of Blackwater/Xe/Academi.



In the meantime, the group has changed its name to American Tradition Partnership, reflecting its larger ambitions. This month, it sent Montana voters a mailer in the form of a newspaper called the Montana Statesman that claimed to be the state's "largest & most trusted news source."



Thanks for the thread, DonRedwood.
