Representative JoCasta Zamarippa echoed these concerns, saying, “We know that individual contributors to our campaigns have to tell us who they are and where they’re employed. I don’t understand why we can’t make corporations adhere to that same requirement.” Her colleague Kelda Helen Roys added, “Corporations will be given the rights of humans, but none of the responsibilities of humans and citizens, and you’re stopping the GAB from ever making rules about it.”

The pernicious underpinnings of “corporate personhood” were brought out by Ed Kuharski, a lifelong resident of Wisconsin. “It is particularly troubling to me that we’re having this discussion on the first week of Black History Month. Since 1875 these arguments equating corporations with black Africans, saying they should be considered people under the same constitutional amendment, have been made.” He added, “If we’re going to be real patriots and citizens and stop throwing battery acid on our body politic, we should assert our state’s rights and say no private money in politics. That would be worth your time. This is not.”
