If a corporation is publicly traded, the profits earned belong to the stock holders of that company who have invested in it. It should not be at the discretion of management to use that money to influence elections.

Why does the Supreme Court think it is permissible for corporations to divert money from its proper owners?

I've worked at the Brainerd Dispatch with various duties since Dec. 7, 1983. Starting off as an Ad Designer and currently Director of Audience Development. The Dispatch has been an interesting and challenging place to work. I'm fortunate to have made many friends, both co-workers and customers.
