"The tie goes to the speaker, not the censor"

Whether you see today’s ruling as “weakening” or “slapping,” or “trimming”

the McCain/Feingold campaign laws, you’ve got to appreciate the simplicity of this statement by Chief Justice Roberts:

“Discussion of issues cannot be suppressed simply because the issues may also be pertinent in an election,” Chief Justice John Roberts wrote for the majority. “Where the First Amendment is implicated, the tie goes to the speaker, not the censor.”

Who would have thought? Free speech in elections!!!
