    The Supreme Court in their landmark case Buckley v. Valeo which held that money is speech and influencing elections is protected speech.  Thus began the slippery slope that has so far culminated in the Citizens United case which blew the doors off of campaign finance accountability.

      The Supreme Court is wrong.

      And this is America so I can say that, and agitate about it, and organize about it, and make noise about it, and hope to raise enough stink to influence a president to appoint justices who'll do something about it.

        But it is going to take at the very least Obama getting re-elected or preventing a Republican take over.  It's going to take a retirement or impeachment of one of the 4+ freaks on the Supreme court that endorse this unspeakably stupid notion.
