Ho Chi MkKain At It Again

It seems John McCain doesn’t like the idea of free speech on the internet, that there could possibly be someone out there able to criticize his action or support a candidate running against him.
McCain tried this a few years ago with his Incumbent Protection Plan and there is currently a fight in the courts over his legislation filed by watch-dog organizations.
There is a Bill in the House, should it become law, would exempt websites and watch-dog groups from posting information on a candidate, whether it be praise or not, within sixty days of an election.
Any info regarding this Bill can be found on Gun Owners of America’s website.

In related news… The Federal Election Commission decided Monday that the nation’s new campaign finance law will not apply to most political activity on the Internet.

In a 6-0 vote, the commission decided to regulate only paid political ads placed on another person’s Web site.

The decision means that bloggers and online publications will not be covered by provisions of the new election law. Internet bloggers and individuals will therefore be able to use the Internet to attack or support federal candidates without running afoul of campaign spending and contribution limits.

"It’s a win, win, win," Commissioner Ellen L. Weintraub said, adding that the rule would satisfy concerns of campaigns, individuals and the Internet community about whether the campaign finance law applies to Internet political activity.
