Bloomberg News: "The judges invalidated part of a ban on unlimited "soft money" donations to political parties from companies, labor unions and wealthy individuals. The Court also struck down a ban on direct contributions by children."
Yup. You can't ban legitimate contributions even from children. It had no legitimate purpose related to the government's interest in preventing corruption during political campaigns. I mean our senators knew the entire time what they voted for was flatly unconstitutional. It doesn't say much for their respect for the Constitution and the rule of law, now does it?
