Professor Heather Gerken Testifies at Senate Committee Hearing on Corporate Campaign Spending
Heather Gerken, J. Skelly Wright Professor of Law at Yale Law School and an expert on election law, testified on February 2, 2010, before the U.S. Senate Committee on Rules and Administration in a hearing titled “Corporate America vs. The Voter: Examining the Supreme Court’s Decision to Allow Unlimited Corporate Spending in Elections.” The hearing followed the U.S. Supreme Court’s January 21 ruling in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, which lifted limits on corporate campaign spending.
Professor Gerken was joined on the witness panel by Montana Attorney General Steve Bullock, George Mason University Law Professor Allison Hayward, Moritz College of Law Professor Edward B. Foley, Steve Hoersting of the Center for Competitive Politics, and Fred Wertheimer, president of Democracy 21.
