Campaign Finance & the Supreme Court
Most of you know that the US Supreme Court will be hearing a case on campaign finance and whether US law can limit corporations. Of course, it will be months before we get a ruling. A great source of information is the Scotus Blog. The court is also going to release the transcript shortly after the 80 minute hearing - probably around noon. Please correct me if I am wrong, but I believe the last time the SC released a recording of a hearing was for Gore v. Bush which I still use in the classroom as it covers so many of the concepts (federalism, republican form of govt, elections, different levels of courts and more all in the first 5 minutes).
