The Best Democracy Money Can Buy

by
Abby Zimet

Taking last week's Supreme Court ruling to its logical conclusion, progressive P.R. firm Murray Hill Inc. is running for Congress in Maryland's 8th Congressional
District as the first "corporate person" to exercise its new constitutional right. Using a "designated human" to sign paperwork, the company plans to spend "top dollar" in the campaign.

"It's our
democracy - we bought it, we paid for it, and
we're going to keep it," said Murray Hill Inc. "The
business of America is business, as we all know. But now,
it's the business of democracy too."
