Dear Mr. Pundit,
I am writing to inform you that the Federal Election Commission has voted unanimously to support my recommendation that there is “reason to believe” that you have violated federal election law. Pursuant to that finding, the Commission has opened an investigation of these violations.
I hereby direct you to provide sworn written answers to the following questions related to your violation of federal election law.
1. Did you on or before August 30, 2008, state on your “blog” that “If elected, Hillary Clinton will be the worst U.S. president of my lifetime”?
2. Did you on or before August 10, 2008, state on your “blog” that “John McCain is an enemy of the First Amendment. If he is elected president, the nation is in trouble.”?
3. Did your “blog” on August 10, 2008, and August 30, 2008, receive in excess of 100,000 visitors?
As part of its investigation, the Commission has subpoenaed your hosting company to provide information about activity on your “blog” on the dates in question in relation to the questions above.
Please note: if you refuse to provide sworn written answers to these questions, the Commission can ask a federal district court to enforce these subpoenas and orders.
In your last letter to the Commission, you stated that “my alleged blogging about Senators McCain and Clinton is protected from government regulation by the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.” You conclude: “The Constitution says ‘Congress shall make no law… abridging freedom of speech.’ No law means no law.”
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
