Scalia: Don’t like super-PAC ads? Turn off the TV

“I don’t care who is doing the speech — the more the merrier,” said Scalia, who was in the majority in the 5-4 Citizens United decision. “People are not stupid. If they don’t like it, they’ll shut it off.”

Justice Stephen Breyer, who was on stage with Scalia in South Carolina, said that every time a decision isn’t unanimous, “somebody is making a mistake,” the AP wrote.

“There are real problems when people want to spend lots of money on a candidate … they’ll drown out the people who don’t have a lot of money,” Breyer said.
