Congress: Kerry's constitutional fix

— "As congressional Democrats mobilize to limit the impact of last month's Supreme Court decision gutting decades of campaign finance law, Senator John Kerry joined calls yesterday for states to go a step further by amending the Constitution," The Boston Globe writes. "Such an action, Kerry acknowledged, would be dramatic but he said it is necessary to restore restrictions on corporate influence in politics. 'We need a constitutional amendment to make it clear once and for all that corporations do not have the same free speech rights as individuals,' Kerry testified at a Senate hearing."
