"The Supreme Court has struck down a provision of a campaign financing system in Arizona that gives extra cash to publicly funded candidates who face privately funded rivals and independent groups. The 5-4 ruling Monday is the latest in a series of decisions by the court's conservative majority upending campaign finance laws. ... The court said the law violates the First Amendment." [editor's note: In other words, it violates the only one of the Bill of Rights decalogue still considered inviolable - SAT] (06/27/11)
