Citizens United v. FEC
Conservative advocacy group Citizens United produces documentary films on controversial political issues. In 2007, Citizens United President David Bossie decided to profile Senator Hillary Clinton, a candidate in the 2008 Presidential election. Having been warned by the Federal Election Commission in 2004 that a similar film about John Kerry would be treated like a campaign commercial under the McCain-Feingold campaign finance law, Bossie decided to challenge the law’s disclosure requirements and corporate contribution limits in court. The case was ultimately reviewed by the Supreme Court, presenting fundamental questions about the intersection of the First Amendment and campaign finance reform.
