Carrying a little stick and speaking loudly in Milwaukee


Today is the last day to send comments to the Federal Election Commission about the new rulemaking restricting online communication. If you haven't already, I encourage people to stop by the Online Coalition's site and sign on to their letter to the FEC.

In short, the recently enacted McCain-Feingold campaign finance reform bill did not specifically mention the internet and therefore the FEC is taking steps to regulate in this area using the law to do so. Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) has introduced legislation exempting internet communication from the new law, but it has yet to see the light of day on the Senate floor.

For more on the rulemaking, see the FEC's page here and my previous post on this issue here.
