By Michelle Malkin  •  February 24, 2009 09:53 AM

Is it possible for Barack Obama to pick a Commerce Secretary nominee who’ll actually make it past first base? Bill Richardson withdrew in the midst of a pay-for-play scandal. Judd Gregg withdrew in the midst of a humiliating power play over the Census and porkulus bill. Now, former Democrat Gov. Gary Locke — a lawyer […]

What should Obama do with his $30 million campaign surplus?

By Michelle Malkin  •  December 6, 2008 12:02 AM

He’s got gobs of cash and lots of grumbly Democrats who want to get their paws on it all. Legally, he can: 1) donate the extra money to charity 2) Transfer it to another political campaign 3) Dole it out in $2,000 increments to local candidates. What to do? What to do? Democrats carrying significant […]

Breaking: Free speech victory in Washington state

By Michelle Malkin  •  April 26, 2007 12:38 PM

There’s an important breaking court decision on a political free speech case involving my friends at KVI radio in Seattle. A reader e-mails: A unanimous Washington state supreme court ruling, issued this morning, reversed a lower court ruling that held radio commentary by Seattle’s KVI-570’s Kirby Wilbur and John Carlson made “in-kind” contributions when they […]

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 […]

Ryan Sager at the NYPost follows up on the McCain-Feingold-inspired crackdown on Seattle’s conservative talk radio: THE campaign-finance-reform lobby has always claimed that it wants to regulate money, not speech. So why are two talk-radio hosts being harassed by Washington state officials under local campaign-finance laws for their on-air support of an anti-tax ballot initiative? […]

Been meaning to bring this important story to your attention: Last week, a Thurston County, Washington, judge ruled that on-air editorial comments by two of my old friends, Seattle talk hosts Kirby Wilbur and John Carlson of KVI-AM, are considered in-kind campaign contributions, subject to reporting under state disclosure laws. Brian Maloney, a former talk […]

Neighborhood watch

By Michelle Malkin  •  July 18, 2004 06:32 PM

This is pretty amazing – a searchable database put together by an enterprising team at FundRace that allows you to find out who your neighbors have been giving political donations to and how much. Personally, my husband discourages me from talking politics with the neighbors. Our kids wouldn’t have anyone to play with if I […]

Wobbly watchdogs

By Michelle Malkin  •  June 22, 2004 02:51 PM

How many times have you read a story about ethics or campaign finance that quotes “non-partisan” groups such as the Center for Responsive Politics, Common Cause, Democracy 21, Public Citizen and the Center for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington?
