Eau Claire votes to amend the Constitution

On election day, more than 70% of Eau Claire residents voted yes on the question:  "Should the U.S. Constitution be amended to establish that regulating political contributions and spending is not equivalent to limiting freedom of speech, by stating that only human beings, not corporations, unions, or PACs, are entitled to constitutional rights?"

Eau Claire wasn't alone!  In every community where Move to Amend-type resolutions were on the ballot November 6th, they passed resoundingly.  Nationwide, 24 communities in eight states voted in favor of real campaign finance reform and against corporate "personhood."
