Curiously, the newspaper's headline and story do not comport with the reality of the new regulation, which is best summarized here:
The rules, developed over more than a year, were aimed at groups that run "issue ads," the campaign-style spots that have in the past avoided regulation because they praise or denigrate candidates without specifically saying whom people should vote for. But the rules would also apply to small groups that don't run TV or radio ads.
"The impact of this regulation is breathtakingly broad and bars every aspect of communication from a farmer who may paint a sign of protest on his barn to an organization publishing a comprehensive study on state finance," the filing says. "It will bar simple e-mail communication among individuals so long as they have paid more than $25 for their Internet connection, if that communication describes the public stand of a candidate, and it will prosecute groups meeting on a street corner if the cost of the soapbox exceeds $25."Note that the news story and the GAB's ass-cover lies mention "groups", the actual regulation covers individuals.
Such as bloggers.
