Citizens United: Buying Congressmen made easy
Both incumbents and potential challengers realize that a deep-pocketed PAC could decide their race. So when they get a call from that PACís director urging them to support this or that, theyíre that much likelier to listen. The result, then, isnít just that moneyed interests can throw congressional elections. Itís that they wield more influence after the election ó and they can exercise that power without spending a dollar.
