June 16, 2017
Donald Trump made some very specific promises to the Religious Right in his 2016 campaign. Nominating an anti-choice judge to the Supreme Court was one, and demolishing the Johnson Amendment was another. The Johnson Amendment, passed in 1954, prevents churches and other tax-exempt nonprofit organizations from spending their money to support or attack political candidates. If wealthy special interests are able to pour tax-exempt money into our elections through churches and religious nonprofits, the impact on the amount of money in politics could be like a second Citizens United.
