Needham Times Ed. Board

THUMBS DOWN to New campaign financing regulations – or lack thereof. 

Thank you to the League of Women Voters of Needham for reminding us in their letter about how the 2012 election differs from elections of just several years ago.

Since the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision of two years ago, corporations, unions and special interest are allowed to, and are pouring unlimited amounts of money into influencing political campaigns.

We urge voters to heed the advice of the League of Women Voters and question every political advertisement, investigate the money behind every campaign, ask candidates about their positions on campaign financing and be sure to head to the voting booth ready to make an informed decision.
