Good morning! How about a little something new? Starting today I hope to condense the day’s posts into one steaming hot cup of political activity law delivered to your inbox every morning before 9 a.m.
I’ll be tweaking the format, title, and just about everything until I think I’m closer to getting it right (and most useful to readers). The substance, for now, will be the same. I’ll be linking to news stories, editorials, press releases, and other campaign finance, lobbying, and ethics material.
If you usually get to the site from Twitter, the titles of each individual story won’t be tweeted so you’ll have to crack open the morning post to see what stories I’ve linked to for the day. I enjoy Twitter but my Twitter feed was starting to look like it was being run by a political law robot. I’ll still be an active Twitter user and enjoy following and following back. (If you’re interested in Twitter, this recent Brian Solis piece is an interesting read on who’s on and what they’re up to.)
Thanks for reading and let me know if the new format works. (I’ll still be adding blog posts later in the evening and when breaking or important developments warrant.)

Earmarks are the topic of this Rep. Flake piece today.
The biggest self-funder was…
