The legal figures and finances behind Citizens United

This ABC News story discusses Jim Bopp and the finances and litigation efforts aimed at campaign finance reform laws.

ABC News has learned that Rep. Chris Van Hollen, a Maryland Democrat, and Sen. Chuck Schumer, D.-N.Y., have been talking with the White House and top Democratic election lawyer Marc Elias to plot out possible remedies that they can try to move through Congress in advance of the 2010 midterm elections.

“The risk here is that the decision will open the political floodgates to unrestricted special interest and corporate money,” Van Hollen said. “If that’s the case there will be a swift legislative response.”
