The Federal Election Commission hit the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth with a $299,500 fine today for playing too fast with election rules. The Swift Boat Vets were a '527' organization, which has no limits on contributions, but were acting like federal political committees, the FEC charged. 527s are allowed to work for or against certain candidates, but if they have no other 'major purpose,' according to FEC spokesman Bob Biersack, then they should register as a committee.

Have a nice Christmas, you lying sacks of shit.

I think it's the right thing to do. Some of these 527s seem to exist only to back a candidate (by defaming opposition, in most cases), and as such they should be registered as committees.

Unfortunately, they hit MoveOn too.
