Censor bloggers to stop corruption…almost*

My cousin Marshall Tracy sent me a note about this the other day, but this was the first time I had a chance to look at it.
It’s intended to stop corruption and *had a section that would have made hash of that little known First Amendment:
“political bloggers who make or spend $25,000 per quarter and who encourage readers to contact their elected representatives would be forced to register as lobbyists–or face up to 10 years in prison.”

* – This is what happens when you’re late to catch up. It appears that the section was deleted late Thursday.
