Just when you thought the Federal Election Commission had it out for the blogosphere, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors took it up a notch and announced yesterday that it will soon vote on a city ordinance that would require local bloggers to register with the city Ethics Commission and report all blog-related costs that exceed $1,000 in the aggregate.
Blogs that mention candidates for local office that receive more than 500 hits will be forced to pay a registration fee and will be subject to website traffic audits, according to Chad Jacobs, a San Francisco City Attorney.
Do you know what San Fransisco is? San Fran is what happens when the Left gets it's way.
Which is why they're the laughingstock of the country.
But in all honesty, they're working on banning handguns (even as Mayor Newsom proposes putting unarmed fire fighters on street corners to help curb the rising crime rate), they give bums money to live on the street (resulting in public fountains being shut down and closed off due to drug paraphenalia, needles, urine and feces in the water), and now they're going to start banning free speech when possible.
If you want to see the damage that the Left can do, look at San Fransisco.
