Can a corporation run for Congress?
If corporations are people, does that mean they can run for public office? We’ll find out soon enough. The p.r. firm Murray Hill Inc., has announced through its “designated person,” Eric Hensal, its intention to run as the Republican candidate in this year’s election against Rep. Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.). Under the banner, “Corporations are people too!”, Hensal rallied with Public Citizen on that cold, rainy day in Annapolis, Md., for a constitutional amendment and legislative action to fix damage the Supreme Court did in its Citizens United v. FEC decision.
Listen to the latest interview with Hensal on his tongue-in-cheek campaign for corporate representation on NPR.org, and spread the word about our campaign to get corporate money out of politics.
