In early February, Nancy Pelosi co-authored an op-ed in in The Washington Post calling to amend the Constitution in order to overturn the Supreme Court ruling on the Citizen United case.
It seems the written word wasn’t strong enough for Congresswoman Pelsoi because while giving a speech at the California Democrat Convention on March 8th, she said it …again (10:50-11:35):
Too often people feel their voices aren’t heard and their votes don’t matter. And the misguided Citizens United decision only made matters worse. For us the answer is clear, it’s a dare. D-A-R-E:
Let’s Disclose all of the secret donors seeking control of our government and our campaigns.
Let’s Amend the Constitution to overturn Citizen’s United.
Let’s Reform the system to strengthen small donors and energize the grassroots.
Let’s Empower voters by ending voter suppression by renewing the Voter’s Rights Act and by electing men and women who will shift the leverage back to working families.
