    The Court didn’t actually hold that they had the right to issue the ads they wanted to. It merely held that their challenge to the Ohio statute could go forward. We’ll still have to wait and see how the lower courts rule on the merits of that challenge, and only then will the Supremes get to decide whether the State of Ohio can legally censor the Susan B. Anthony List’s ads.

    And it is not a matter of cracking down on them for being pro-life, but an Ohio rule against making “false” statements in election campaigns. In fact, under the statute, it is illegal for politicians to tell lies about each other!

    The Cato Institute’s brief was a hilarious defense of “truthiness, insinuations and allegations” as First Amendment rights and important parts of the political process. It noted that in striking down the “Stolen Valor Act”, the court implied that outright lies are protected speech.
