Pelosi: hey, let's amend the Constitution so we can regulate political speech

Terence Jeffrey at CNS News reports that House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) supports an amendment to the U.S. Constitution to allow greater regulation of political speech:

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi on Thursday endorsed a movement announced by other congressional Democrats on Wednesday to ratify an amendment to the U.S. Constitution that would allow Congress to regulate political speech when it is engaged in by corporations as opposed to individuals.

The First Amendment says in part: “Congress shall make no law … abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press…”

Television and radio networks, newspapers, publishing houses, movie studios and think tanks, as well as political action committees, are usually organized as, or elements of, corporations.

This probably went over pretty well among Beltway Democrats, but many Twitter users saw it as an attack on freedom of speech and were a bit reluctant to go along:

    Keep talking Nancy. Democrats, real Democrats are starting to wake up. If 1st Amendment challenged Pelosi is the first one I’d shut up!

  • MShingleton

    Pelosi has been in office so long, removed from life as a normal American citizen, that she is incapable of realistic thoughts anymore.  She is starting to sound like a Kardashian.
