American Tradition Partnership (ATP) v. Bullock: Supreme Court Amici Brief of Representative Brady et al. in Support of Bullock

May 18, 2012

Amicus brief filed by Representatives Robert Brady, Chris Van Hollen, Zoe Lofgren and Charles Gonzalez in support of respondents. The purpose of this brief is three-fold: first, to inform the Court why the transparency and accountability presumed by Citizens United has not, in fact, materialized; second, to explain that misinterpretation of Citizens United has prevented a legislative solution to the lack of transparency and accountability; and third, to urge the Court, if it issues an order, to affirm that Citizens United leaves room for – and, indeed, expressly contemplates – legislative action to ensure disclosure, transparency, and accountability in corporate independent expenditures.
