Links on the DISCLOSE Act of 2010

Links on the DISCLOSE act of 2010. Though ostensibly just a bill to mandate disclosure,it did in fact directly restrict speech both by government contractors &  by companies that have 20% or more of their equity in the hands of foreign investors.

Even the disclosure provisions
were designed to be so onerous so as to have a chilling effect on speech; specifically the speech of  anonymous political bloggers &  the speech of ”new political organizations”, such as the Tea Party groups.
