More campaign finance hyperbole from the TimesThe New York Times is again upset about a campaign finance issue before Congress, but Jason Rylander tears their argument to shreds.
If you're in favor of burdensome, redundent reporting requirements, then join the NY Times in their sanctimony. But even if you truly care about regulating campaign spending, the bill before the House this week to eliminate duplicate filing requirements on state and local candidates and PACs is no Trojan horse. It doesn't weeken McCain-Feingold. It's a needed reform that restores some sense to the campaign finance system.Jason explains what the laws actually say, instead of what the Times claims they say.
