Political bloggers may get federal protection
Some members of Congress are trying to make sure bloggers have freedom of speech and are not subject to Federal Election laws like PACs.
Can you imaging a blogger being arrested and convicted for doing something online (like supporting a candidate) because they spent some money to build out their site or create a podcast or video endorsing a candidate?
According to CNET:
\”The FEC is under court order to finalize rules to extend a controversial 2002 campaign finance law to the Internet.\”
Congress better pass this legislation before the courts start restricting our free speech.
