10th District Blog Off the FEC Hook

In a decision that should make political bloggers happy, the Federal Elections Commission denied a request for action for “failure to register and report” from Illinois Republican Party Chairman Andy McKenna against

Tenth District Blog,(Link no longer working.)

The Illinois – 10 General Election Fund, a project of ActBlue, Matthew DeBergalis, treasurer and

The Committee to Elect Zane Smith, Barry J. Moltz, treasurer.

Here’s what the FEC press release said (more FEC information here):
The complainant alleged that the Tenth District Blog expressly advocated the defeat of Congressman Mark Kirk (IL/10), solicited contributions for the campaigns of potential Democratic opponents, and failed to include a proper disclaimer on these communications.

The Tenth District Blog was established by an anonymous person using Google’s E-blogger software, which is offered free of charge.

Both ActBlue and the Smith Committee denied any knowledge or contact with the Blog and stated that they had not received contributions from the Blog or through ActBlue.

Based on available information, the Blog did not appear to have made expenditures or received any contributions that would trigger political committee status. The Commission found no reason to believe any of the respondents violated the Act.

This is the typical Republican Party out of touch with the masses and the future. The Republican support free trade, which deprives American workers now even white-collar workers of their jobs while exploiting foreign workers in sweatshop factories. The US Government shall be a supporter of progressive healthcare and science (i.e., stem cells.)


Since the New Deal, Republicans have been on the wrong side of every issue of concern to ordinary Americans; Social Security, the war in Vietnam, equal rights, civil liberties, church- state separation, consumer issues, public education, reproductive freedom, national health care, labor issues, gun policy, campaign-finance reform, the environment and tax fairness. No political party could remain so consistently wrong by accident.
The only rational conclusion is that, despite their cynical "family values" propaganda, the Republican Party is a criminal conspiracy to betray the interests of the American people in favor of plutocratic and corporate interests, and absolutist religious groups.

...and absolutist religous groups.

Republican's are Polytheists too. Drive them out from Navoo again Milt?

While the Republican's are racial profiling to drive the Muslims out country. Today we can make a religion from a science fiction novel and but it is heresy to question someone who follows the religion if they want to be President.

Well, make me the Messiah and BTW my religion by many gods who are spirit produced by my children. Instead we blow up our The FBI gasses the WACO bunker. The same thing Saddam was accused of doing.

The Branch Davidians were an offshoot of the Seventh-Day Adventists. They moved to Waco in the mid 1930s. They took up residence at Mount Carmel in the early 1960s. The Branch Davidians and their spiritual leader David Koresh. We only know what the our government says happens. After the GH Bush Iraqi, Ronald Reagan knew nothing of the Iran-Contra shenanigans lies "I am not a crook." "Read my lips: no new taxes." we should question always question Government!!!

Do you know these religions? Talk to your clergy about them.


Shalom,

Reverence for a fine education ran deep through the American upper Class. Don't be fooled by hideous new money, if allowed a generation or so to dry off and clean itself up.
