James Bopp is the man behind End Citizens United. James is a lawyer from Terre Haute, Indiana. He appeared in court in January 2008. James appeared before three judges in Washington, DC. He wanted End Citizens United to be allowed to air a movie known as Hillary at the Democratic Presidential Primaries on Television. End United Citizens had produced the show that reveals how Hillary Clinton was a ruthless political schemer and Europe socialist. Ann Coulter and Kathleen Willey were featured in the show alongside Hillary Clinton.
Kathleen Willey accused Clinton of kissing and hugging her in the white house. She suggested featuring Clinton in the film. Clinton was trying to assassinate her. The Federal Electoral Commission told End Citizens United that the movie would not be aired because it is an extended 90 minutes show and none of them wanted to pay for it. James Bopp argued that the show was not different from what people watch in the 60 minutes movies. He went ahead and argued that the show should be given First Amendment Protection.
US District Court Judge Royce Lamberth laughed out loud when James Bopp was arguing his point. He told James Bopp that there is a significant difference between the 90 minutes and the 60 minutes show. She wondered if James Bopp had read the whole transcript. The supreme court reversed Royce’s ruling and adopted James Bopp’s arguments two years later.
