Am I the only one to be frustrated when I hear/read this comment ???
It's called the "Stand by your ad" provision of the 2002 Campaign Reform Act.
Jim Dick said:Tom,
Politics is probably the most frustrating time in our history. I will be so thankful when it is over for this election. I am inundated with all kinds of political comments.
I almost cancelled my FB account due to the constant bombardment of political nonsense. I know it is crucial to discuss items concerning our country but the diabolical rhetoric that is being produced, which is mainly lies on both sides, is more than I can take!!!
Gary RV Roamer said:The specific wording has been copied by most everybody, but AFAIK it is not part of the law. I haven't looked at the actual text of the McCain-Feingold "BiPartisan Campaign Responsibility Act", but I believe it just requires that somebody take official responsibility for the content of every political ad and to state that in the ad itself. It applies to both radio and tv ads, but not printed materials.
