Posted on 03/26/2014 7:00:01 PM PDT by TurboZamboni
House File 1944 and Senate File 1915, politically motivated measures aimed at suppressing political speech by membership organizations such as the NRA, continue to move quickly through the Minnesota legislature. These flawed and dangerous bills pose a grave risk to freedom of speech in Minnesota and overreach to impose excessive regulatory burdens on political interests. HF 1944 and SF 1915 would require organizations like the NRA, who engage in political speech, to disclose the names of many of their donors, including those who pay membership dues. This legislation would re-brand what is now recognized as free speech as elections speech, thereby subjecting it to strict and onerous regulations regulations that would tell organizations what they can and cannot say depending on the time of year. This legislation would even go so far as to inhibit the NRAs ability to provide candidate information at critical times before an election. This legislation is simply an attempt by state politicians to control and discourage any criticism of them and their records.

“Election speech” is somehow different that protected free speech? This stinks like a rotten corpse.
