FEC chair warns of chilling regulations, book ban on conservative publishers

The chairman of the Federal Election Commission today blasted Democratic colleagues opposed to his effort to protect conservative media after they imposed rules on the publisher of Rep. Paul Ryan's new book, opening the door to future book regulations -- or even a ban.

“By failing to affirm this publisher’s constitutional right, statutory right, to disseminate a political book free from FEC conditions and regulations, we have effectively asserted regulatory jurisdiction over a book publisher,” warned Chairman Lee E. Goodman, one of three Republicans on the six-person FEC.

“That failure reveals a festering legal uncertainty and chill for the free press rights of books and book publishers to publish and disseminate political books free from government regulation,” he added. ...

"The FEC was set up by the Federal government, probably to give some sort external control of the rampant immorality of Congress in fund raising? Looking at Wikipedia it looks like I'm right. "The Federal Election Commission (FEC) is an independent regulatory agency that was founded in 1975 by the United States Congress to regulate the campaign finance legislation in the United States. It was created in a provision of the 1975 amendment to the Federal Election Campaign Act. It describes its duties as "to disclose campaign finance information, to enforce the provisions of the law such as the limits and prohibitions on contributions, and to oversee the public funding of Presidential elections." excerpt from, (Federal Election Commission).

Though you speak in jest, it is upon you to explain why the FEC should have say about political book content. And why would the same news in another publication carry more weight? The question is, did the FEC attempt to do what the Chairman of the FEC said they did? That ought to be enough info, even for those leftists who see only good in the attempt, as long as it is not directed against the left.
