Anticipating a Supreme Court decision that could free corporations to spend unlimited amounts of money on political campaigns, Rep. Alan Grayson (D-FL) has introduced six bills that are meant to choke off the expected flood of corporate cash.
"We are facing a potential threat to our democracy," Grayson said in an interview with Huffington Post. "Unlimited corporate spending on campaigns means the government is up for sale and that the law itself will be bought and sold. It would be political bribery on the largest scale imaginable."
The bills will try to deal with the recent Supreme Court ruling allowing corporations to spend money to support specific candidates in presidential and congressional campaigns.
Grayson introduced bills with titles such as, Business Should Mind Its Own Business Act, Corporate Propaganda Sunshine Act, End Political Kickbacks Act, and other measures meant to
limit the ability to buy elections.
