Srry to get all political on ya, but this is absolutely awesome.
Murray Hill Inc. is believed to be the first â€œcorporate personâ€ to exercise its constitutional right to run for office. As Supreme Court observer Lyle Denniston wrote in his SCOTUSblog, â€œIf anything, the decision in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission conferred new dignity on corporate â€œpersons,â€ treating them â€” under the First Amendment free-speech clause â€” as the equal of human beings.â€
Murray Hill Inc. agrees. â€œThe strength of America,â€ Murray Hill Inc. says, â€œis in the boardrooms, country clubs and Lear jets of Americaâ€™s great corporations. Weâ€™re saying to Wal-Mart, AIG and Pfizer, if not you, who? If not now, when?â€
Murray Hill Inc. plans on spending â€œtop dollarâ€ to protect its investment. â€œItâ€™s our democracy,â€ Murray Hill Inc. says, â€œWe bought it, we paid for it, and weâ€™re going to keep it.â€
Murray Hill Inc., a diversifying corporation in the Washington, D.C. area, has long held an interest in politics and sees corporate candidacy as an emerging new market.
The campaignâ€™s designated human, Eric Hensal, will help the corporation conform to antiquated â€œhuman onlyâ€ procedures and sign the necessary voter registration and candidacy paperwork. Hensal is excited by this new opportunity. â€œWe want to get in on the ground floor of the democracy market before the whole store is bought by China.â€
Murray Hill Inc. plans on filing to run in the Republican primary in Marylandâ€™s 8th Congressional District. Campaign Manager William Klein promises an aggressive, historic campaign that â€œputs people secondâ€ or even third.
