FEC Has Chosen Failure

The FEC had failed once again to do its job as the nation's election watchdog by choosing not to regulate the activities of 527s. By clinging to its flawed case-by-case enforcement, the FEC yesterday chose to continue a policy that has already been labeled a 'total failure' in federal court. I can not imagine a scenario under which they will be able to justify the current dereliction of their duty to bring 527s under the same rules that govern all other political committees.
