Free Speech For Me But Not For Thee

Ryan H. Sager at Tech Central Station takes a startling look at the campaign finance reform legislation. This is a must read.

In September of 2000, less than two years before the passage of McCain-Feingold, the liberal magazine The American Prospect put out a special issue devoted to campaign-finance reform. It was called, "Checkbook Democracy." And it was bought and paid for with a $132,000 check from the liberal Carnegie Corporation of New York, which has spent millions of dollars promoting laws to restrict political speech -- a fact the magazine never disclosed to its readers.

Read the whole thing.

Though he's probably trying to carefully pick his fight(s), I'd have to take exception at the AFL-CIO as a non-partisan group.
