Attorney Carl Mayer and activist Adam Fergatch return for Part 4 of our series on their effort to overturn Citizens United. This podcast is free, available to all–please share it! Mayer has emailed and called Times reporter Adam Liptak about the critical jurisdiction issue in the Montana appeal of its campaign law that bans corporate money; but in his June 11 report, Liptak does not even mention it, and reports his own prediction that the Court will take the case or issue a summary reversal. It’s not too late for Montana’s AG to embrace the motion on jurisdiction, so please call or keep calling.

Tell them to file the brief challenging the Supreme Courtâ€™s jurisdiction in the appeal of the case â€œATP vs. Bullockâ€. It only takes a minuteâ€“I called both offices and the people who answered were very nice.
In response to an email from our listener Natalie in Hamilton, Montana, Mayer and Fergatch express concern the Democratic leaders are just paying lip service to the idea of overturning Citizens United, and that media outlets don’t cover the issue because they crave the campaign spending.
