Soon after corporate political bribes were decreed "protected free speech", I was wondering how long it would take for "truth in advertising" laws to be overturned for the same reason.

There is a case before the SCOTUS, due to be decided within a couple weeks.

Supreme Court has 17 cases to decide by June's end

"False" campaign claims: An anti-abortion group says state laws that try to police false statements during political campaigns runs afoul of the First Amendment.

Seems ironic that an anti-abortion group, which is probably religously motivated, claims the "right" to violate the 9th commandment.
