Interview With James Bopp of Citizens United

Last week I attended a conference in New Orleans called "FEC v. Citizens United: The End of Democracy As We Know It?" The conference discussed and debated the significance of the Supreme Court's Citizens United decision. The decision ended limits on corporate spending for political campaigns, citing First Amendment rights to free speech.

That decision has been one of the most important and controversial developments in national politics of the past few years. The debate was furthered at last week's event, where delegates from each side of the argument stated their cases.

James Bopp, lead counsel for Citizens United, was gracious enough to let me interview him, and you can view that interview in the video below.
