Campaign Finance Foreign Influence

Campaign Finance Foreign Influence

FILE - In this Jan. 27, 2010 file photo, President Barack Obama gestures while delivering his State of the Union address on Capitol Hill in Washington. The Supreme Court's decision on campaign finance has jumbled a seemingly simple rule of American politics _ foreigners should play no role in U.S. elections. Now that the court has declared that corporations have a constitutional right to spend from their general treasuries to support or oppose candidates for president and Congress, the prospect of foreign influence in campaigns has emerged as a flashpoint in the back-and-forth between critics of the ruling and its defenders.
