Who Should Echo Marry?

The Palm Beach County Green Party has a unique event to commemorate the first anniversary of the affirmation of corporate personhood. Former Green Party co-chair Ms. Sarah “Echo” Steiner is single, and ready to tie the knot with her dream corporate person:

FIRST EVER CORPORATE WEDDING CONTEMPLATED BY SINGLE, FEMALE, 39.

THE SEARCH FOR A CORPORATE HUSBAND WILL COMMEMORATE THE 1ST ANNIVERSARY OF THE SUPREME COURT RULING RE-AFFIRMING CORPORATE PERSONHOOD.

On January 21st, 2010 the Supreme Court of the United States re-affirmed that Corporations have the same Constitutional rights as people (Citizens United v FEC). In commemoration of that decision there will commence a national search for the ideal corporate groom for a mere mortal, Ms. Sarah “echo” Steiner, who has made it clear that she intends to take the Supreme Court at its word and honor her marriage when she finds a suitable candidate.

The search is on. A press conference will kick off the event on Saturday, January 22, 2011 at 2:00 p.m. at the Little Owl in Lake Worth, Florida located at 527 N. Dixie Highway. At this time, Ms. Steiner is expected to announce her decision to search for a suitable corporation to marry. There have been rumors circulating that a number of potential corporate grooms are already in the running (including green colored corporate persons).

So mark you calendars, tell your friends, and spread the word: if corporations are persons, then let us celebrate the end of discrimination against them by permitting them to get married just like everyone else… well, almost everyone else. See you there!!!

This event is sponsored by Florida Move to Amend, Palm Beach County Green Party, and Progressive Democrats of America, Florida. For more information on Move to Amend, go to www.movetoamend.org.

  1. Kudos to Echo and members of the Green Party of Florida for coming up with this idea! It’s fun and it makes a point. I hope it gets a lot of attention.

  2. If you keep getting screwed by corporations, at some point you may as well make it official.

  3. You guys should pitch the idea to msnbc or something. This will get Greens noticed nationwide.

  4. A wonderful media stunt! Kudos to Echo and the Florida Green Party!!

    When we had Greenpeace Co-founder Rex Weyler speak at our L.A. Greens meeting a few years ago, he said we have to tell stories and create stories so compelling that the media has no choice but to cover them.

  5. I think it should be Procter and Gamble. Take a stand for Polymory while she is at it.
