Nancy Pelosi, enemy of free speech

I don't know what to say here, except maybe "what the hell did you expect?". Pelosi is just as far to the left as Bush Co. is to the right. And... now she has power.

The legislation would make changes to the legal definition of “grassroots lobbying” and require any organization that encourages 500 or more members of the general public to contact their elected representatives to file a report with detailed information about their organization to the government on a quarterly basis.


The report would include identifying the organization’s expenditures, the issues focused on and the members of Congress and other federal officials who are the subject of the advocacy efforts. A separate report would be required for each policy issue the group is active on.

Kind of ironical the corruption hunting Dems are turning the screws on the simple exercise of rights and freedoms. Guess it's a safe way for Pelosi to demonstrate her concern about ethics. Going after the big boys risks having your own dirty laundry exposed.
