I just read a little about this case, and how it may overturn, at least in part, McCain-Feingold.

There seems to odd bed-fellows filing briefs in support of CU.

Personally, I hope it overturns MF in whole, and lets the NRA get back speaking on my behalf, one of the reasons I became a Lifetime Member.

Almost 2 months with no replies. I think it warrants a bump, or it could be that my thread is as interesting as wet paint.

Most likely. And you provide no detail.

I have no idea who will win. It seems sort of an odd case.

Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission is an ongoing legal case in which the United States Supreme Court will decide whether a politically charged film can be defined as a "campaign ad" under the Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act, commonly known as the McCain-Feingold Act. This case is an appeal from a lower court case of the same name from 2008, in which the United States District Court for the District of Columbia sided with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) that Hillary: The Movie could not be shown on television right before the 2008 Democratic primaries under the McCain-Feingold Act. Legal scholar Erwin Chemerinsky called it “one of the most important First Amendment cases in years.”
