Is Attorney General Steve Bullock Losing at the Supreme Court on Purpose?

Today on the Talk Back show, we will be visiting with political activist Adam Furgatch. Furgatch is a member of TEAM (The Eleventh Amendment Movement), a group which believes Montana’s Attorney General can win the current Supreme Court case (American Tradition Partnership vs. Bullock) over corporate spending by arguing that Montana has sovereign immunity under the 11th amendment. The 11th amendment reads:

The Judicial power of the United States shall not be construed to extend to any suit in law or equity, commenced or prosecuted against one of the United States by Citizens of another State, or by Citizens or Subjects of any Foreign State.

According to an article by Charlie Cray in the Corporate Crime Reporter, an Assistant Attorney General from Montana explained that the reason they were not using the 11th amendment in their arguments was because of “the potential implications in other contexts, if your theories were adopted.” Apparently, no further explanation was given. So far, two amicus briefs have been filed on the 11th amendment, but other than TEAM, no one seems to be talking about this line of argumentation. Here’s a brief video by Furgatch on the issue:

 

Here’s a song Furgatch produced about corporate personhood and why he believes Citizen’s United should be overturned.
