Citizens United vs. Federal Election Commission 5-4 Majority Opinion of the Court: "The concurrence explained that any 'undue influence' generated by a speaker’s 'large expen-ditures' was outweighed 'by the loss for democratic proc-esses resulting from the restrictions upon free and fullpublic discussion.' Id., at 143. [...] In United States v. Automobile Workers, 352 U. S. 567 (1957), [...] The dissent concluded that deeming a particular group“too powerful” was not a 'justificatio[n] for withholdingFirst Amendment rights from any group—labor or corpo-rate.' Id., at 597."
