One of the landmark decisions out of the US Supreme Court this year was Citizens United, which made it easier for corporations to spend money to influence elections. We brought up the topic with Independence Party Congressional candidate Steven Wilson after a debate against his opponents in Minnesota’s first congressional district. Wilson tried very hard to not answer a simple question, should companies such as Cambria which is located in Minnesota’s first congressional district, be called out or admonished by candidates for spending money to influence elections. Wilson’s ultimate answer was that even months after the U.S. Supreme Court decision he had not studied the issue and he would need to poll people on his website before he made any decision.
