ALEXANDRIA, Va. — A judge has ruled that the campaign-finance law banning corporations from making contributions to federal candidates is unconstitutional, citing the Supreme Court’s landmark Citizens United decision last year in his analysis.

In a ruling issued late Thursday, U.S. District Judge James Cacheris tossed out part of an indictment against two men accused of illegally reimbursing donors to Hillary Clinton’s Senate and presidential campaigns.

  1. I am a Brit but as a barrister (lawyer to you) I know that the Constitution must be followed and that if there is no amendment then some rules will fail. Corporate America donating to campaigns in my opinion seems fine as long as it is made public so people know how much influence it may make for giving that donation.
