Federalist Society Debate on Citizens United

I am one of the (possibly few) strongly liberal Democrats who also believes Citizens United was correctly decided and that corporate political speech deserves full First Amendment protection, which puts me in a fun position. For the next two weeks, I will be participating in an on-line Federalist Society debate on Citizens United. Debaters include Larry Ribstein (Illinois), Barry Friedman (NYU), Trevor Potter (former FEC Chair and General Counsel to the McCain Campaign), and appellate litigator Erik Jaffe.

The first two entries (from Ribstein and me) are up and the full debate can be accessed here (but boy do I need a new picture).

Don't worry, Howard. You're not the only one.
