One of the protest signs was clearly aimed at Justice Anthony Kennedy which read," Yes Justice Kennedy, we the people see the corruption." That was in direct reference to Kennedy's assertion, as the writer who wrote the majority opinion in Citizens, "the Court now concludes that independent expenditures, including those made by corporations, do not give rise to corruption or the appearance of corruption"and the appearance of influence or access will not cause the electorate to lose faith in this democracy."
But this protest group appeared to have faith that Kennedy, at least, would reflect and reconsider the words he penned in the majority's opinion and conclude he was in error.
Admittedly, that's a whole lot of faith. But unless Kennedy has resided in a cave these past two years and had no access to newspapers or the media of any kind, HE would surely conclude these huge expenditures in the Congressional campaigns two years ago and this years Republican presidential primary campaigns DO give rise to corruption or the appearance of influence or access WILL cause people to lose faith in this democracy.
Justice's Ginsburg and Breyer have alluded as much (in light of the Montana Supreme Court's upholding a 1912 law banning corporate funds in State elections, which Justice Kennedy has stayed) and called for the full Court to reconsider their ruling on Citizens.
