Ithaca Alderperson Wants to Change the US Constitution

Posted: January 30, 2012 in Category - Constitutional Understanding, Jennifer Dotson, No Civil or Political Rights For Business

Jennifer Dotson (Alderperson, 1st Ward) has decided we need to amend the Constitution. Her complaint? Big business has the civil and political rights of an individual.

“WHEREAS, the illegitimate judicial bestowal of civil and political rights upon corporations usurps basic human and Constitutional rights guaranteed to human persons, and also empowers corporations to sue municipal and state governments for adopting laws that violate ‘corporate rights’ even when those laws serve to protect and defend the rights of human persons and communities”

Clearly, Ms Dotson does not understand the purpose of the document. Yet, like so many Progressives Ms Dotson seems to believe the document exists to enshrine into law her whims.
