Jim Bopp filed a lawsuit yesterday on behalf of "The Real Truth About Obama, Inc" (RTAO) "against the Federal Election Commission and the Department of Justice to enjoin them from enforcing various FEC rules in order for it to engage in issue advocacy about Barack Obama’s position on abortion and other issues."
This morning, Bob Bauer weighed in.
CCP’s own Steve Hoersting has previously written a series of blog posts that examine some of the issues that the government may have to address in the RTAO lawsuit. Note: The posts explore some of the legal issues facing groups whose ads meet the "no reasonable interpretation test" of FEC v. WRTL (II), a predicate yet to be determined in the RTAO case.
