The right is circulating another lie - don't fall for it.
The right-wingers are claiming that the Senate lobbyist reform bill would force bloggers to register as lobbyists. That is just a lie.
What the bill would really do is require those who are paid to lobby to register as lobbyists and disclose what they are up to. And they have to be paid more than $25,000 before they even have to do that. That the right-wing bloggers are so worried about this does say something, doesn't it?
There's also a comment on this at AmericaBlog.

So you take one unknown (to me at least) website and, from that, extrapolate to all conservative bloggers? And the ACLU's support for this position - is that also because of the right-wing bloggers?
This is NOT a right or left issue. It is truly a Constitutional issue that should concern all Americans. Here is a link to GrassRootsFreedom.com where Mark Fitzgibbons, Esq. provides a statutory retort to Professor Bainbridge proving conclusively that Bloggers would be considered "lobbyists".
