This is the week when Oregonians will begin to see, in their living, dining and bedrooms, what has been unleashed on the country by the recent U.S. Supreme Court ruling “Citizens United.” It’s a huge crush of political advertising that those paying for it are hoping is the MAIN thing voters think about when they’re mailing in their ballots in late October.

Throughout Republican Monica Wehby’s campaign for U.S. Senate, she’s had trouble raising money here at home. But that campaign funding deficit has been erased with the entrance of the Koch Brothers and their “Freedom Partners” funding machinery which is spending lavishly in states where they think there are vulnerable Democratic candidates. Despite Senator Jeff Merkley’s strong lead over Wehby in the polls, Freedom Partners appears ready to invest millions of dollars to see if a thunderclap of attack ads can turn the tide.

Regardless of whether you’re a Republican, Democrat or Independent, it’s an interesting “experiment” to see just whether the country has as much to be afraid about from Citizens United as many claim we should be.

The Oregonian’s political reporter Jeff Mapes weighs in on the topic. Click here.
