Letter: Money is not speech

Published: Saturday, April 12 2014 12:00 a.m. MDT

The flood of money from the superwealthy to politicians is the gravest danger to our democracy. Jefferson is now turning over in his grave.

How some members of the Supreme Court could support the Citizens United and McCutcheon decisions is proof that they are either very confused or that they think that plutocracy is to be favored over democracy. Shame on them. We should consider impeachment of these errant jurors.

We must work hard to pass a constitutional amendment to overturn these obscene decisions.
