Since colonial days, money has played an important if ever-evolving role in American politics. But the U.S. Supreme Court's 5-4 decision in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission in 2010 accentuated the growth of new and differing ways of using money to affect political outcomes. Recent court decisions also highlight a growing debate on the limits of "free speech" (as expressed through cash contributions and expenditures) in the political process. This CLE examines the role of money on U.S. campaigns before Citizens United, the very divided court decision itself, and the post-Citizens United environment in which candidates and citizens now find themselves.
