From “electioneering speech” to “dark money,” Citizens United has profoundly affected U.S. politics. Program features an examination of the First Amendment; the history and impact of the 2010 decision on campaign spending today; the upcoming election; and the degree to which unaccountable money in our election system disproportionately hurts women and women candidates.
