FREE SPEECH FIGHT IN WASHINGTON STATE, PT. III

For those of you who have been following the story of the McCain-Feingold-inspired crackdown on Seattle’s conservative talk radio, Ryan Sager has an update:

The gas-tax opponents who were slapped for not reporting radio commentaries as “in-kind” contributions to their ballot-initiative campaign have fired back.

In complying with the judge’s order, they’ve made new campaign-finance filings listing every single radio broadcast and newspaper article about the initiative as “contributions,” since all of the news coverage fueled signature gathering and fundraising.

Of course, these disclosures are every bit as absurd as reporting the commentaries of two talk-radio jocks who support the I-912 campaign — Kirby Wilbur and John Carlson — but that’s just the point.

Heh-heh.

Stay tuned…
