This is a movie about the formet Senator/First Lady/Dem. Pres. Candidate wannabe. Opponenets of the “Hillary: The Movie” say it is a harshly critical 90-minute film that long-time opponents of the Clintons wanted to put on cable TV. The federal government blocked it, deeming the film nothing more than a glorified attack ad, improperly paid for in part by corporate contributions. Remember the McCain-Feingold law intended to keep corporate money out of politics?
“Hillary: The Movie” was produced by a former Republican congressional aide.
The moviemakers claimed that the ban was an unconstitutional restriction on free speech, and a majority of the Supreme Court appeared to agree. The justices’ may settle the question of whether the government can regulate a politically charged film as a campaign ad.
One scene, which is of no suprise and was used in an ad, has Dick Morris, a former adviser to President Bill Clinton who is now a critic of the Clintons, saying the senator is “the closest thing we have in America to a European socialist.” Good thing the Kennedy family was no place near Morris.
A ruling is expect by late June. Hilary is busy at her current job as Secretary of State.
