I missed this too– the FEC has decided to protect fully and completely political bloggers:
I am pleased that it appears we have a consensus today and will establish several important protections for online political speech. This has been a very difficult rulemaking on multiple levels. However, if the Commission adopts the proposed final rules before it today, I think a number of positive things will be accomplished.
First, the proposed rules totally exempt individuals who engage in political activity on the Internet from the restrictions of the campaign finance laws.
Huzzah, and thanks to Mike Krempasky and the folks at the DKos who worked to make this happen.
