Supreme Court Cites Wyoming Liberty Group in Citizens United Decision

In a landmark decision, which cited the Cheyenne based Wyoming Liberty Group’s amicus brief, the U.S. Supreme Court on Jan. 21 reversed precedence that limited the ability of Americans to freely participate in the election process.

The Wyoming Group’s brief, written by University of Wyoming graduate constitutional attorney Benjamin Barr, described the arbitrary nature of Federal Election Campaign rulings. Barr served as Chief Counsel to two successive Federal Election Campaign Commissioners.

“The law prevented individuals such as a neighborhood group from pooling private funds to participate in an election. This has now been overturned, allowing grassroots organizations to take a more active role,” Wyoming Liberty Group spokesperson Susan Gore said. “Even with the ban on corporate campaign spending, there were loopholes that allowed large corporations to funnel money to campaigns.

As cited in the court’s decision, more than 75 percent of corporations are mom and pop shops making less than $1 million per year, Gore added. “These mom and pop shops and did not have the sophistication to exploit these loopholes, but now have equal access to participate in elections.”
