NARAL Pro-Choice America on Susan B. Anthony List’s Case to Sanction Lying in Political Campaigning

The Supreme Court today ruled that anti-choice group Susan B. Anthony List can challenge an Ohio law barring knowingly misleading statements in political campaigns under their First Amendment rights. NARAL Pro-Choice America released a statement from president Ilyse Hogue:

"Groups who can't win based off of the facts or the merit of their argument often resort to lying and deceiving the public. This now appears to be the primary strategy of the SBA List. The public, and the press, is now put on notice to not take anything that comes out of the SBA List organization as truthful or fact based."

The SBA List is planning to spend between $8 and $10 million this year to target lawmakers across the country.
