Citizens United is making a mockery of the democratic process. There's no need for any integrity since donors can remain anonymous. It's also a great ruling for money laundering, since you can donate millions to a group that doesn't need to justify its spending. In Montana, Dark Money Helped Democrats Hold a Key Senate Seat | TPMMuckraker In the waning days of Montanaâ€™s hotly contested Senate race, a small outfit called Montana Hunters and Anglers, launched by liberal activists, tried something drastic. It didnâ€™t buy ads supporting the incumbent Democrat, Sen. Jon Tester. Instead, it put up radio and TV commercials that urged voters to choose the third-party candidate, libertarian Dan Cox, describing Cox as the â€śreal conservativeâ€ť or the â€śtrue conservative.â€ť ... Such spending played a greater role in the Montana Senate race than almost any other. With control of the U.S. Senate potentially at stake, candidates, parties and independent groups spent more than $51 million on this contest, all to win over fewer than 500,000 voters. ... The end result? Tester beat Republican Rep. Denny Rehberg by a narrow margin. And the libertarian Cox, who had so little money he didnâ€™t even have to report to federal election authorities, picked up more votes than any other libertarian in a competitive race on the Montana ballot.
