What price free speech? $25, apparently.

March 14th, 2008

According to this Milwaukee Journal Sentinel story:

State law requires that anyone who spends more than $25 to advocate for or against a referendum or political candidate must register with the school district at issue and identify oneself and the stance being advocated, cialis sale buy viagra among other things.

So my POLITICAL speech becomes subject to government scrutiny as soon as I spend $25 on it?

My time is usually billed at around $150 an hour. So if I spend 10 minutes writing a post against a school referendum do I have to REGISTER with the government?

Good God, why do we have a First Amendment again?

    I don’t get PAID $150 an hour, Jay.

    Overhead, baby. Lots and lots of overhead.
