I have a call into Greg Assay, a legislative aide who works in Supervisor Maxwell’s office, regarding the overbroad definition of “electioneering communication.” My hope is to get an answer here that should clarify the intent of the ordinance and whether or not webloggers will be required to register with the San Francisco Ethics Commission.
[UPDATE: Assay tells me that weblogs will be recognized as a news source. The City Attorney will make an announcement at tomorrow morning’s board meeting stating that weblogs will be recognized as a news source.]
