Apparently, the Republican National Committee doesn’t want the television networks to play the latest MoveOn.org ads because the $10 million MoveOn has raised could be bypassing the campaign finance reforms that have come about in recent years.
Interestingly enough, Dan Gillmor reports that two committees belonging to AG John Ashcroft raised funds in order to pay for the lawyers defending the groups and the fine that they were hit with when breaking some campaign finance reform laws back in 2000.
It’s fascinating that you can fundraise to cover fines. Man – and we complain when people pursue cyberbegging.
