FEC Declares Blog Exempt from Campaign Finance Law

The Fired Up! network of blogs has been declared to have the ‘press exception’ to the US federal campaign finance laws.

The Commission concludes that the costs Fired Up incurs in covering or carrying news stories, commentary, or editorials on its websites are encompassed by the press exception, and therefore do not constitute “expenditures” or “contributions” under the Act and Commission regulations.
