I just saw Jordan Sekulow, who seems to be right-wing legal commentator Jay Sekulow’s son, claiming that the president was wrong in pointing out that the new Supreme Court decision opens the flood gates to foreign money in American campaigns. That’s wrong. The president is clearly correct. And it’s only a highly tendentious argument that claims otherwise. But what stands out to me is how sensitive Republicans seem on this point — Alito included. This is an important tell.
