During an era of public outcry against government corruption, the Supreme Court conservatives strike down limits on campaign contributions - Smash the Man

The justices said in a 5-4 vote that Americans have a right to give the legal maximum to candidates for Congress and president. According to the Supreme Court, caps on campaign contributions restrict a person’s First Amendment free speech rights.
