Philosopher Dr. Diana Hsieh interviewed Institute for Justice attorney Paul Sherman about "Free Speech in Elections" in this episode of Philosophy in Action Radio. 

Many people support restrictions on spending in elections, particularly by corporations, in the name of "transparency" and "accountability." Institute for Justice attorney Paul Sherman takes a very different view. He argues persuasively that any restrictions on campaign spending are violations of freedom of speech. He has successfully argued that view in courts across the country. 

Paul Sherman is an attorney with the Institute for Justice. He litigates constitutional cases protecting the free speech, economic liberty, and property rights.
