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.
