View Full Version : legal issues and convential advertisement

I know I need to consult an atty. but I wondered if anyone knew the answers to these questions:

1) If my meetup does a chipin to run the USAtoday ad in my local paper, do we have to form a PAC?

2) what if I run the ad myself paid for by donations from people on the internet? (see queston 3)

3) If the ad is about 3,400 do I/we have to fill out a FEC report/document?

4) Can I take money from non-Americans or ex-patriots?

5) Can I say the ad was paid for by "Ron Paul supporters on the internet" or does it have to be an actual person?

No, not necessarily.

My Church is beginning a donation drive, for our Electoral Educational Project. Perhaps we could help if we find enough support.

We are not a Federally Registered 501(c)3 Organization,
so our outreach is not limited in terms promoting specific individual candidates.
