Another Right-Wing Lie – Bloggers and Lobbyists

The right is circulating another lie – don’t fall for it.
The right-wingers are claiming that the Senate lobbyist reform bill would force bloggers to register as lobbyists. That is just a lie.
See Congress to Send Critics to Jail, Says Richard Viguerie
What the bill would really do is require those who are paid to lobby to register as lobbyists and disclose what they are up to. And they have to be paid more than $25,000 before they even have to do that. That the right-wing bloggers are so worried about this does say something, doesn’t it?
There’s also a comment on this at AmericaBlog.

    So you take one unknown (to me at least) website and, from that, extrapolate to all conservative bloggers? And the ACLU’s support for this position – is that also because of the right-wing bloggers?
