Day’s Website Discovered

By Greg L | 3 May 2007 | 31st HOD District | 9 Comments

William Day, who is the Democrat challenging Scott Lingamfelter in the 31st District, has been somewhat of an enigma as he hasn’t had a web presence or published his policy positions. About the only information we know about him has come from an interview in the Fauquier Times-Democrat, and today’s Manassas Journal-Messenger article. I guess with his recent press visibility, it finally became time to unveil his website, which I stumbled across looking for background information today at www.voteday.org.

I have to admit it’s a pretty creative legislative strategy to try to hypnotize the General Assembly during votes. I don’t think anyone has tried that before.

    That website’s really funny. But I wonder - what are the rules for finance disclosure on something like that?

    Gorduloo is probably right. Whoever’s responsible for that should probably check on that.

    It does need to be listed who paid for and authorized the site.

    Interesting question. Why should whoever did this site have to do that? If a citizen decides to engage in political speech, in this case clearly a parody, and doesn’t apparently expend a large amount of money in order to do so, why should they be required to follow government regulations?

    Don’t First Amendment liberties apply to political speech? Do any of us put up a “paid for and authorized by” disclosure at the end of every comment we post where we might advocate for or against a candidate for office?

    To answer your question, Greg, not any more. See McConnell v. Federal Election Commission.

    I seem to recall a case — although the citation eludes me — that we do not have an obligation to comply with unconstitutional laws. Of course that requires a determination that the law in question is in fact unconstitutional, but “Congress shall make no law… abridging the freedom of speech” seems pretty clear to me.

    I wonder, do you think this could turn into a test case?

    You know, Greg, you cite the plain language of the First Amendment, and that imperative “no Law” part, and all I can hear in my head is Beavis and Butt-head and their “heh, heh,” “heh, heh.”

    At least, I’m pretty sure that’s what Congress and the courts frequently do in response to the plain text.
