A Florida state senator has proposed a bill that would force bloggers earning income by writing about state politics to register with the state and disclose the sources of that income. Free speech advocates are balking, of course, and it should be noted that the new law wouldn’t apply to newspapers or their websites, nor to politicians whose dark money funders will remain as obscure as ever.
Jimmy and Americans’ comedian Kurt Metzger discuss the obvious First amendment issues with this bill and whether it’s some sort of put on or ratfucking effort.
