Loopholes and Loopiness

The Wall Street Journal's news pages (the ones biased the same way as the rest of the media) seem to think Ned Lamont exploited a "loophole" in spending his own money to run his campaign. Actually, the Supreme Court has determined that the ability to do so is a fundamental right.

Bob Bauer lays it all out here.

There's a pretty immense irony, though, that the champion of the anti-corporate netroots left is a self-financing multi-millionaire. Rich people are the only ones we can trust these days, apparently -- no one can buy them.
