Justice O'Connor Dissents

Sandra Day O'Connor has belatedly dissented from the Supreme Court's decision in the Citizens United case, according to this report at ABC News.com. Unfortunately, her dissent does not affect the outcome, but does given an indication of how her replacement, Samuel Alito (the Justice who expressed disapproval of President Obama's remarks about the Court's ruling during this week's State of Union address), has moved the Court at least marginally to the right.
