The FEC $100,000 Post
Well, the FEC is poised to make life easier for regular folks by subjecting their blogs to CFR regulations.
That's the legislation from a couple of Senators, with the support of a few friends, that supposedly reforms the system. Most people from a certain party supported it, as well as some who should have known better. It isn't clear if links to 527s will become regulated as well, but certainly regulation of the Internet and Email is on their minds...there was a successful lawsuit over it.
So blogs would have to be careful about where they link lest those links be considered an in-kind contribution. It doesn't matter if the link is to someone in dire need of ridicule and abuse. What matters is the supposed monetary value of the resulting Instalanches.
