The FEC regulating webloggers seems to be in order.
Draft rules from the Federal Election Commission, which enforces campaign finance laws, would require that paid political advertisements on the Internet declare who funded the ad, as television spots do.
So if TAM is fortuate enough in the future to get political ads I'll be drowned in FEC compliance. Thanks guys. Way to uphold the free speech rights of passionate, concerned citizens.
Here's how I'd get around these rules:
My plan doesn't stop legal costs from incurring. I'm not a lucky weblogging power broker like Kos who can get lawyer to file a comment for him. But it would be a big middle finger to the FEC, Sens. McCain and Feingold, and President Bush who signed the damn campaign finance bill.
