Seth Barrett Tillman, now of the National University of Ireland, Maynooth, Faculty of Law, has published this opening statement in a four-part exchange with Professor Zephyr Teachout. Tillman responds to Teachout's Anti-Corruption Principle, a 2009 Cornell Law Review article, which was relied upon Justice Stevens in his Citizens United dissent and cited by Justice Scalia in his concurrence.
