Follow the Money

Mother Jones tracks down the dark history of dark money, beginning with (surprise, surprise) Nixon.  Though there has been some nonsense lately in the MSM about how the Chief Justice was “shocked, shocked” by the results of Citizens United, that’s just so much eyewash.  Citizens United was Roberts’ baby and it has achieved precisely the desired result:  a plutocracy.  Needless to say, I have almost no faith that the Supremes will do anything to disturb this in the pending Montana case American Tradition Partnership v. Bullock.
