Greensboro joins Asheville and 10 N.C. cities in calling on overturning Citizen’s United

Press release

from Progressive Pulse

Greensboro has become the 12th city in North Carolina to approve a resolution calling on Congress to overturn Citizens United v. FEC. That’s the 2010 landmark U.S. Supreme Court ruling that allows for unlimited spending by corporations and special interest groups to influence elections.

Greensboro Mayor Robbie Perkins summed up his support of the resolution this way, “You turn on the TV and there’s someone throwin’ mud at somebody about something. And whether you are a Republican or a Democrat, it’s just out of control.”
