This is bad news if it gets any traction. This blogger is suing DailyKos.com, alleging that they are an undeclared political action committee (PAC). I suppose he might have a leg to stand on, but if this were to be decided in his favor, the dominoes that would fall would really rock the web.
Daily Kos, after all, is far from the only politically motivated site on the Internet. Right-wingers have as many or more sites themselves. And what of FOX "News," a cable "news" network, seemingly devoted to all things Republican? I don't fear for this site, as I have a more diffused focus, but wow. Be careful what you wish for, dude.
Blogger who filed rejected FEC complaint against Kos may appeal
The blogger who filed a complaint with the Federal Elections Commission against Daily Kos says he may appeal Tuesday's FEC ruling on the matter, which found the popular left-leaning site did not violate the Federal Election Campaign Act as charged. A lawyer for the blog, however, dismissed the claims as a fantasy.
"I'm not entirely surprised," said John Bambenek, a research programmer at the University of Illinois who submitted the complaint, in a Wednesday interview with RAW STORY. "[The FEC] doesn't want to get into all the drama of blogs."
