Abstract:     
Citizens United v. FEC was a landmark case in which it was deemed unconstitutional to restrict the speech of corporations. Section 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organizations are not allowed to engage in political speech and are restricted in lobbying as well. This paper argues that after Citizens United these restrictions are also unconstitutional.
