come down firmly on one side of that balance. As a result, even as the issue of
money in politics looms ever larger in American life, the First Amendment as

politicians—to seek reform through campaign finance laws. Many reactions to
Citizens United mixed prophecies of doom with urgent calls for reform.

Justice for the first time in close to twenty years and the addition of an Associate
Justice for the first time in over a decade. The initial proceedings in this
