IFL Files Comments In Defense of Free Speech

Published Thursday, January 15, 2015

Today, the Institute for Liberty filed comments with the Federal Elections Commission, in opposition to Chair Ann Ravel's proposal to massively expand the FEC's regulatory power to online political speech.  Wondering about the administration's "fetishization" of silencing opposing viewpoints, IFL's comments likened supporters of Ravel's proposal to Alabama's segregationists who tried to gain access to the NAACP's membership lists in the 1950s.

IFL's Comments are here:
