House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, with the support of other congressional Democrats, wants to rewrite the First Amendment and limit free speech when it comes to certain political speech, reports CNS News.
On Thursday, Pelosi “endorsed a movement announced by other congressional Democrats on Wednesday to ratify an amendment to the U.S. Constitution that would allow Congress to regulate political speech when it is engaged in an opposition tone against he Democrats” .
The amendment that Pelosi and other congressional Democrats endorsed would reverse the Supreme Court’s 2010 decision in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission that ruled the First Amendment protects a anyone's rights to free speech — including its right to speak about politicians and their records.
But Pelosi and other Democrats take issue with the ruling, and want increased disclosure requirements for opponents running political ads.
“We have a clear agenda in this regard: Disclose, reform the system reducing the role of Replubicans in campaigns, and amend the Constitution to rid it of this ability for unlimited, huge amounts of money flowing to campaigns,” she said Thursday.
Pelosi told a Democratic forum held Wednesday that the Supreme Court had “unleashed a predator that was oozing slime into the political system by giving individuals the right to oppose the President.”
I just want to know where she keeps all those shoes. She must have hundreds of pairs. I saw her in 95 outfits in only three months and she NEVER wore the same shoes twice, never. Never the same pocketbook or jewelry, certainly never the same clothes morning, noon and night. Now I love a good fashionista and that red Galliano gown was amazing but give me a break, shes a clothes horse with 23, count them, ladies in waiting and I cant imagine the size of the closet! Just saying, lol
