A Corporation Has Announced It Will Run For Congress

YouTube link.

Murray Hill Incorporated has just announced its intention to run for Congress in Maryland's 8th Congressional District.
Murray Hill Inc. is believed to be the first “corporate person” to exercise its constitutional right to run for office. As Supreme Court observer Lyle Denniston wrote in his SCOTUSblog, “If anything, the decision in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission conferred new dignity on corporate “persons,” treating them — under the First Amendment free-speech clause — as the equal of human beings.”

Murray Hill Inc. plans on spending “top dollar” to protect its investment. “It’s our democracy,” Murray Hill Inc. says, “We bought it, we paid for it, and we’re going to keep it.”

The campaign’s designated human, Eric Hensal, will help the corporation conform to antiquated “human only” procedures and sign the necessary voter registration and candidacy paperwork.

To emphasize its point, this liberal public relations firm will file to run in the Republican primary.

If people hadn't tried to push the envelope of McCain-Feingold past the point of all sense, prompting the Supreme Court to strike down it and its precursor rather than accept unconstitutional implications, then we wouldn't be in this position. So what do the liberals do when their reductio ad absurdum arguments backfire? Protest with more reductio ad absurdum. Never learn....
