The Supreme Court will hear arguments in a case challenging an Ohio law that makes it a crime to lie during an election. This law forbids candidates, issue groups or anyone else from knowingly or recklessly making false statements about someone on the ballot - whether the untruths are intended to help elect or defeat the candidate. Opponents claim enforcement of this law infringes on one’s First Amendment Rights of Freedom of Speech.
