When friends of Carly Fiorina launched Carly for America, their team was mildly concerned that the Federal Elections Commission would be hot on their heels for naming their group after their candidate. Since Super PACs are supposed to be "legally unaffiliated" with the candidates they support, so that they can maintain an air of neutrality in their fundraising that doesn't fool anyone. They thought, perhaps naively, that the Federal government would be willing to interpret the rule liberally in the case of certain conservative organizations.
I'm not ashamed to say that I love Carly. But no one, not even the former CEO of Hewlett Packard and affiliates, should assume that the FEC will apply its rules - even its incredibly vague ones - liberally. Accordingly, the FEC issued a warning: change your name or face a fine. In deference to the vaguaries of the rule, Carly for America did change its name. It announced, today, that it's become the fully FEC-compliant, CARLY for America.
