A Citizens United Vs F.E.C. Discrepency

Aloha from Hawaii,

I attended Ed Case's "Ed Case for Senate 2012" Campaign Kick-off Party in Wailuku, here on Maui in Hawaii..., August 26, 2011.

I talked with Ed about the U.S. Supreme Court ruling on Citizens United Vs F.E.C., & how U.S. Corporations who have Factories in Foreign Countries, who employ Foreigners that are generating Foreign Revenue for the U.S. Corporations; which then contribute a portion of this "Foreign made Income" to U.S. Candidates' Campaigns & or for the Production of Independent Political Broadcasts (AKA: Electioneering Communications) "For or Against" a U.S. Candidate..., is quite possibly a Violation of Federal Campaign Law, because Foreign Money can not be used to influence the outcome of a U.S. Federal Election.
Interesting Subject Matter the U.S. Supreme Court Justices might have over-looked?
It appears the Violation is under:
Federal Election Campaign Laws ~ Section 441e: Contributions & Donations by Foreign Nationals; In Conjunction with: 22 U.S.C. Section 611(b) "The term "Foreign Principal" includes... (3) a Partnership, Association, CORPORATION, Organization, or other Combination of Persons organized under the Laws of a Foreign Country".
In Conclusion:
If a U.S. Corporation has Factories in Foreign Countries operating under Foreign Law..., the U.S. Corporation is Prohibited from making Campaign Contributions & or Producing or Financing Independent Political Broadcasts (AKA: Electioneering Communications) "For or Against" a U.S. Candidate(s).
I believe this research to be accurate to the best of my knowledge... & if so... it contradicts the Supreme Court Justices' ruling on Citizens United Vs F.E.C.
Food for thought!
Sincerely with Aloha,
Antonio Gimbernat
