Calif. appeals court says Citizens United measure should stay on ballot

by - August 05, 2014

A California appeals court on Thursday tossed out a lawsuit seeking to block a ballot measure asking whether Congress should overturn the U.S. Supreme Court’s Citizens United campaign finance decision. Proposition 49 proponents issued a statement cheering the decision even as those behind the challenge vowed to appeal the case to the California Supreme Court. “We’re delighted that voters will have a chance to collectively speak out against big money in politics with their votes,” said Michele Sutter, chairman of the Yes on 49 “Money Out Voters In” campaign. “How ironic it would have been for courts to tell us that billionaire campaign spending is free speech but that Californians can’t even speak back with our votes.”
