Who is getting political contributions from small donors?

Retired U.S. Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens said that the Supremes have already had second thoughts on its controversial Citizens United ruling that eased restrictions on corporate spending in political campaigns.

Stevens, who dissented from the 2010 decision, said that at some point the court will issue an opinion "explicitly crafting an exception that will create a crack in the foundation" of Citizens United ruling.

Aside from criticizing the Citizens United decision, Stevens also mentioned the Bush v. Gore case after an audience member asked him about it.

"I think you have to have confidence that the justices will do their best to not make that same mistake again," he said to laughter and applause.

Supreme court did, in fact, install Bush as president using civil rights law designed to protect minorities. 

Well, one per centers are minoritiesaren't they? 

The Citizens United ruling was a blow to American democratic principals and will greatly help the GOP elect more plutocrats as president. 

The highest US court should be ashamed of these shabby rulings
