    A Virginia federal court recently ruled that a trademark would prevent a parody of the NAACP in naming the group “National Association for the Abortion of Colored People.” The Radiance Foundation was objecting to the liberal stances of the group that excluded any significant pro-life activities, but was told by the court that its parody […]

    Anti-abortion super PAC Women Speak Out is making its voice heard in several tight Senate races this cycle. But given its most recent donors, that voice might be a few octaves lower than you might expect. Women Speak Out was founded as an offshoot of the Susan B. Anthony List in 2012, joining the election season fray with an ad narrated by an “abortion survivor.” The super PAC is “aimed at amplifying the voices of women opposed to abortion extremists in Congress,” according to its website. But almost every individual donor assisting that amplification in the…

    We’ve filed our reply brief in the appeal of Smith v. Obama, our case challenging the NSA’s mass telephone records collection on behalf of Idaho nurse Anna Smith.  The case will be argued before the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeal on December 8, 2014 in Seattle, and the public is welcome to attend. Another case challenging the telephone records program, Klayman v. Obama, will be argued on November 4 in Washington DC before the DC Circuit and EFF will be participating as an amicus. The Smith v. Obama case records are all here: but we thought we’d highlight three of the more outrageous…

    Many long time readers of this blog will know this, but I write the below material for those who are coming across the FOIA for the first time and have no real understanding of it. The Freedom of Information Act covers material maintained by the federal government's Executive Branch, including independent agencies (i.e. FCC, SEC etc.).  The Judicial and Congressional Branches are not covered by the FOIA. States are not covered by the federal FOIA either.  However, each state has its own access law.  Some of them are called a FOIA, but many have a different name (open…

    2 Oct 2014 | 11:27 am
    The Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) has released its audit report of the IRS FOIA operations.  The report fails to address the real issues that I have found with the IRS FOIA Office,  namely a decentralized system with a managers ill versed in FOIA law as well as a FOIA appeals system that is among the worst in the FOIA system.  I hope TIGTA looks at these procedural issues in its 2014 audit of the IRS FOIA operations.

    A magistrate judge has handed the ACLU a victory in a case brought against the Department of Justice in the United States District Court in Northern California.  Firedog lake reports that the court ruled against the government, and most importantly, took great issue with many of the standard arguments that the DOJ made to protect the information.  The court issued two opinions, one of which ordered additional searches to be made, the other ordering the release of certain documents.

Bush appointee denied the request and invoked the glomar (neither confirm nor deny) in doing so.  The requester sued, and the Court has now ordered the agency to process the records.  More can…

  • “Grassroots” Groups Flooded with Big Donor Cash in Third Quarter

    Lalita Clozel
    17 Oct 2014 | 1:05 pm
    Big-dollar donations to outside spending groups in the third quarter appeared to be falling like manna from heaven. Take, for instance, the largess of Bob McNair, owner of the Houston Texans. He doled out at least $3.5 million to seven different super PACs in the three-month period ending Sept. 30, pumping up their reserves weeks ahead of Election Day. The common theme uniting them: Their strategic work in the battle over Senate control — and, in all but one case, names that make them sound indigenous, even if most of their funding, like the donations from McNair, comes from…
  • North Carolina Senate Race Now No. 1 All-Time in Outside Spending

    Andrew Mayersohn
    17 Oct 2014 | 11:52 am
    Thursday evening, the Koch-affiliated Freedom Partners Action Fund reported making a seven-figure ad buy attacking Sen. Kay Hagan (D-N.C.). With that buy, the North Carolina race passed 2012′s Virginia Senate election to claim the dubious honor of attracting the most-ever outside spending. The $55.7 million spent on the showdown between Hagan and Republican Thom Tillis is even more remarkable in context. By this date in 2012, the Virginia race between now-Sen. Tim Kaine and former Sen. George Allen had seen just $30.4 million of its eventual $52.4 million in outside spending. If the…

    17 Oct 2014 | 8:23 am
    It appears Dave Brat has given up running on a shoestring for a new pair of Air Jordans. The Republican nominee for Virginia’s 7th District congressional seat became a political celebrity overnight by defeating House Majority Leader Eric Cantor in a June 10th primary — despite a multimillion dollar fundraising disadvantage. The tea party-supported Brat was able to use Cantor’s fundraising chops against him, arguing that Cantor was beholden to his corporate contributors rather than his constituents. “I am running against Cantor because he does not represent the citizens…

    Correction: The original version of this story incorrectly stated that Chevron Corp. made a $2 million donation to CLF. It has been corrected to reflect the actual amount of the donation, $1 million. Chevron Corp. donated $1 million to a conservative super PAC with ties to Karl Rove’s dark money network in early July, a rare instance of a prominent publicly traded company taking advantage of the post-Citizens United rules on corporate involvement in politics. It’s not the first time Chevron has made such a donation — in the 2012 cycle, it gave $2.5 million to the same…

  • For some House incumbents, traditional PACs are super

    Peter Olsen-Phillips
    20 Oct 2014 | 7:16 am
    Over 90 percent of the money raised by Rep. Bobby Rush's campaign this election came from PACs. As anyone who has signed up for a campaign or political party's email updates knows, the pleas to pony up some cash fill the inbox this time of year. While those requests for $3, $5 or $10 contributions can add up for some candidates, for many of them — particularly long-serving incumbents with fairly safe seats — the fundraising trail doesn't lead to individuals, but special interests in the form of political action committees. Sunlight took a look at which candidates lean the heaviest on…

In this week's roundup of notable deleted tweets from U.S. politicians archived by Politwoops, we'll look at a couple musically inclined deletions, an accidentally shared b-roll ad, a rash of old campaign tweets that tried to be scrubbed and more. We start with a deletion from the campaign account for Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., that said "Alan Simpson Band playing My Old Kentucky Home" with the image seen to the right. The deletion was removed after eight minutes and appears to be taken in the midst of a fundraiser called "Rand Paul's Barnburner & BBQ" for the Rand…

And even if you do assert your rights…what happens next? That answer may seem complicated, but protecting yourself is simple if you know your rights. That’s why EFF has launched an updated Know Your Rights Guide that explains your legal rights when law enforcement try to search the data stored on your computer, cell phone or other electronic device.

  • The Need for Speed: $15 Billion Cost of Foodborne Illness Underscores Urgent FDA Action

    15 Oct 2014 | 3:25 pm
    Preventable foodborne diseases cause thousands of illnesses and deaths in the United States every year. Coupled with this pain and suffering, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) recently estimated that foodborne illnesses cost the American public more than $15 billion annually. To develop this estimate, the USDA analyzed specific disease outcomes from 15 major pathogens found in food in the United States, which account for over 95 percent of the illnesses and deaths from foodborne disease. It also examined health care costs, lost wages from these illnesses, and other costs. We can…

  • UK government shuts down free speech with threats of jail (tabloid newspapers exempted)

    Tom Pride
    19 Oct 2014 | 1:51 am
    (not satire – it’s the UK today!) When government ministers or members of the establishment talk about free speech, they don’t mean free speech for plebs like you and me. As an illustration of this, Justice Secretary Chris Grayling has just announced 2 year jail sentences for anyone found to have been dishing out abuse on social media. But the law will not apply to tabloid newspapers, who dish out abuse on a regular basis – sometimes with tragic consequences. If the government thinks dishing out abuse online should result in jail, fair enough. But the laws must also…
