The Supreme Court decision that declared restrictions on corporate funding for campaigns unconstitutional (“High court voids curbs on political ad spending,” Page 1, Friday) has rightly raised concern among politicians, news outlets and ordinary citizens.

We need a constitutional amendment that eliminates not only corporate cash, but also money from individuals who cannot legally vote in an election because they do not reside in the district or state directly affected by the outcome.

It offends the integrity of the democratic process when real constituents must compete with outside forces and resources to see their chosen candidate elected to office. The American people must demand that the right of free speech not be used to undermine the integrity of representative government.
