An interesting question from our friends over at Big Hollywood:
Heres FEC definition of an in-kind contribution:
Most people think of contributions as donations of money in the form of checks or currency. While these are common ways of making a contribution, anything of value given to influence a Federal election is considered a contribution. This section describes several forms of giving that are considered contributions under the Federal campaign law. All the contributions you makewhatever their formcount against your $117,000 biennial limit and your separate committee limits.
Donated Items and Services
The donation of office machines, furniture, suppliesanything of valueis an in-kind contribution. The value of the donated item (the usual and normal charge) counts against the contribution limits. A donation of services is also considered an in-kind contribution. For example, if you pay a consultants fee or a printing bill for services provided to a campaign, you have made an in-kind contribution in the amount of the payment.

So you have seen this “Game Change” and therefore have a valid opinion about it?
Nolte talks about the HBO hit piece and aires audio clips.
Game change is an interesting book (great read, have you read it? I have) but it’s mostly 80%-90% about Obama vs Clinton and the inside fighting going between them. McCain was only mentioned in the last 10% and Palin was only mentioned in a sliver of that. Yet the HBO piece centers on her with the memes that she’s a Caribou Barbie and vindictive person.
Listen to Nolte from Big Hollywood discussing the piece and the games HBO played to trick Palin.
Tom Hanks, Ed Harris and other Hollywood 1% ers are giving their all to the Obama reelection effort. If this were a conservative project the media would be apoplectic.
