You may have heard that Common Cause has asked the Justice Department to look into conflicts of interest involving Justices Scalia and Thomas, the Koch brothers, and their vote to allow the Koch Brothers and other big-money corporate interests to put unlimited money into our elections. More than $300 million went from these corporate interests into the 2010 midterms, and that was just the beginning.
This Common Cause letter explains. It asks the Justice Department "to investigate whether Scalia and Thomas’ participation at Koch-sponsored private meetings represents a shocking and undisclosed conflict of interest when they ruled on the Citizens United case -- which opened the floodgates to unlimited corporate political spending."
