Single Female, 39, Seeks the Right Corporation for First Ever Corporate-Human “Merger” Wedding

• Single Female makes Initial Public Offering: The search for a corporate husband will commemorate the first anniversary of the Supreme Court ruling reaffirming corporate personhood

• Press conference: Saturday, January 22, 2 pm at the Little Owl, 527 N. Dixie Highway in Lake Worth, Florida

One year ago on January 21, 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.  Ms. Steiner 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 press is cordially invited to join the bride as she formally announces her intention to seek a corporate partner and to unite one heart and one corporate charter in love forever (or not).  A press conference will kick off the search for a corporate groom on Saturday, January 22, 2011 at 2:00 p.m. at the Little Owl in Lake Worth, Florida, located at 527 N. Dixie Highway.  

There have been rumors circulating that a number of potential corporate grooms are already in the running (including green corporate persons).  Once a suitor has been found, the Bride and her future corporate husband will announce their plans to marry in a public ceremony.

"The court's ruling has opened the door to the union of corporate and human persons in ways that were never imagined before," said the Bride.  "But, frankly, I'm wondering who's going to be on top on the wedding night."

“If corporations are persons, then let us celebrate the end of discrimination against them by permitting them to marry just like everyone else … well, almost everyone else,” says Carla Christianson of Move to Amend Florida.

But Suki DeJong of the Palm Beach County Green Party has expressed concern for the inevitable consequences of the Supreme Court's ruling.  "There just aren't enough corporations to go around," said DeJong.  "Sure, it's okay for Ms. Steiner, but what about the rest of us?  I'd like to marry one myself.  On the other hand, those things can live forever.  They're not like real people."

The 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 HTTP://WWW.MOVETOAMEND.ORG.
