    ways. SCOTUS has determined that corporations are people when it comes to campaign contribution. Now, when it is time to prosecute them, Holder ignores this fact and corporations are "people".

    Holder needs to take SCOTUS at their word and began prosecuting everyone from the CEO to all of the chief officers that were involved.

    I have hardly been a fan of Eric Holder to put it mildly but, thought that he was on the path to redeem himself. Now, we see once again typical Holder.

    Go get him Levin.

      It is precisely because corporations are not people, but rather people's property, that they cannot be guilty of a crime. The people who directed the corporation are guilty of crimes done by corporation. Just as the driver is guilty when they drive a car into a person or a a person's property - the car isn't guilty.

      The corrupt Supreme Court was as wrong as it's ever been on corporate personhood. Their elevation of property (and its owners) over people must be starkly abandoned. This case is a perfect example.
