Thanks John, Thanks Russ

McCain and Feingold, that is. Thanks to their wonderful campaign finance reform bill, a 527 corporation sent out "informational" fliers about Racine's recent school board election. The fliers only mentioned three of the six candidates (all of whom were elected, oddly enough), but they weren't endorsing those three candidates. Nope, not at all. Purely informational. Yup, yup, yup.

I'm not sure there has ever been a worse piece of legislation than the McCain-Feingold Campaign Reform Act. It made it ever so much easier for special interests to funnel money into elections while making it ever so much harder for the average person to have his voice heard.
