First They Came for the Political Bloggers

Two weeks ago, the Senate considered a lobbying reform bill which would reportedly have required bloggers who communicate to more than 500 members of the public on public policy matters to register and report quarterly to Congress, in much the same way as K Street lobbyists.

The blog Wonkette reports that this over-reaching requirement was removed from the final bill by Senate Republicans. All but six of our freedom-loving Democratic majority voted to keep the registration requirement in the bill, but these votes allowed the Republican minority to remove the requirement.
