Recently, something oddly appropriate occurred – state legislators sued the state over portions of its election law.  The litigation is born of noble origin:  Four legislators filed suit to preserve the constitutional rights of residents to criticize or applaud them.  The cause of controversy is quite simple.  In January, the US Supreme Court declared that government could not ban grassroots and corporate organizations from speaking out about political issues and candidates for public office.  While other states moved to amend their laws in the wake of the Citizens United opinion, the Wyoming Legislature decided to go it alone – leaving its unconstitutional speech ban in place.
