David Bossie has served as President and Chairman of Citizens United since 2000. He was previously an investigator in the House Government Reform and Oversight Committee. Bossie apparently attended the University of Maryland and what was then Towson State.
Under Bossie, Citizens United has produced a number of documentaries, most notably Hillary: The Movie. This documentary resulted in the Federal Election Commission telling Citizens United they couldn’t distribute it due to campaign finance regulations.
Citizens United filed suit. The case, Citizens United v. the Federal Election Commission, was ultimately decided in favor of Citizens United by the U.S. Supreme Court. Here’s how Wikipedia sums up that ruling:
For-profit and not-for-profit corporations may now advertise and broadcast messages of a political nature without limits on how much they can spend and with few limits on the timing and nature of the messages.

From Bossie’s Citizens United biography:
David N. Bossie has served as president of Citizens United and Citizens United Foundation since 2001.
Bossie is the former Chief Investigator for the United States House of Representatives Committee on Government Reform and Oversight. During Bill Clinton’s two terms as president, he led investigations ranging from the Whitewater land deal to the transfer of dual-use technology to China and to foreign fundraising in the 1996 Clinton re-election campaign. He has authored four books, including the best selling Intelligence Failure: How Clinton’s National Security Policy Set the Stage for 9/11.
In 2010, Citizens United won a landmark First Amendment decision at the United States Supreme Court in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission. The case, which saw the government assert during oral arguments that it had the Constitutional authority to ban political books, struck down two decades of unconstitutional restrictions on free speech. Most recently, Bossie was ranked number two in Politico’s top 50 most influential.
As president of Citizens United Productions, Bossie has produced 25 documentaries since 2004, most recently, Rocky Mountain Heist hosted by Michelle Malkin, Occupy Unmasked featuring the late conservative icon Andrew Breitbart, Our Sacred Honor with Senator Rick Santorum, The Gift of Life with Governor Mike Huckabee, and the award winning films Nine Days That Changed The World and Ronald Reagan: Rendezvous with Destiny hosted by Callista and Newt Gingrich.
Born in Boston, Bossie attended the University of Maryland. He proudly served for 20 years as a volunteer firefighter in Montgomery County, Maryland where he resides with his wife, Susan, and their four children; Isabella, Griffin, Lily Campbell, and Margaret Reagan.
Citizens United was founded in 1988, and is the leading conservative advocacy group in the country with over 500,000 members and supporters. Through its films, op-eds, policy papers, newsletters, and grassroots organizing, Citizens United seeks to reassert the traditional American values of limited government, freedom of enterprise, strong families, and national sovereignty and security.
