In 2010, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that the First Amendment prohibited the government from restricting independent political expenditures from a nonprofit corporation. The plaintiff in the case, Citizen’s United, was a conservative political action group which wanted to air a film critical of Hillary Clinton during television broadcasts. In 2010 the airing of the ad was outlawed by the McCain Feingold Act which banned radio and TV advertising by corporations and unions within 60 days of a general election or 30 days of a primary. Justice Kennedy’s majority opinion struck down these provisions and ruled that corporations, as associations of individuals, therefore have speech rights under the First Amendment.  See recent campaign finance news
