My take on this is that the regulation could be interpreted very loosely. I'm all for campaign finance reform, but this will impact any type of non-profit criticisizing policy or politicians; a faith-based group organizing for policy, an environmental group working to educate the public about a potentially critical vote, etc. I don't think it matters where you stand in the spectrum of political voices, this appears to be in clear violation of Free Speech. I am concerned that large corps. have such an enormous influence in govt., but when non-profits speak up they will be silenced. Thanks for bringing this up.
