Hey, did Hillary Clinton and Americans United For Change just violate federal campaign law?

(H/T: @SonnyBunch) Probably not, but they should have to at least explain this one.

Remember, by the way: these people are advocates for even stricter campaign finance laws than the ones they have. They therefore have to be better about this sort of thing than their opponents. Myself, I think that it’s absurd that this sort of thing could even be arguably illegal, but then I think that most campaign finance laws are absurd anyway. Hillary Clinton doesn’t have this excuse*.

You ever get the feeling that the Democratic party leadership has an inherent difficulty at understanding just how badly emails can blow up in your face, if you’re not careful?

*Said excuse she should be intimately familiar with, because… well, perhaps we shouldn’t go there.

    Don’t you remember how we got McCain/Feingold? McCain and other’s got caught violating earlier laws. Then Clinton and Gore got caught raising money from China. They broke the law, then shamed their opponents (who didn’t break the law) into passing tougher laws that only those opponents would follow. “We got to get the money out of politics!”

    Took money from China but weren’t punished. Amazing how that works.

    laws are for the little people. on the other hand, if her head explodes during the first dem debate the point may become moot.
