“Super PAC’ American Crossroads seeks permission to feature candidates in ads”

Worth reading this WaPo report.  Fred Wertheimer predicted this back in Aug. 2010: “In fact, under the new FEC regulation, a Representative or Senator, or other congressional candidate, will be able to sit down with a corporate executive, draft an ad promoting his or her campaign and have the executive’s corporation pay for broadcasting the ad when and where the candidate wants – and none of this constitutes “coordination” in the view of the FEC, so long as the ad is run after the candidate’s primary and more than 90 days before the election, and does not expressly say “vote for” the candidate or its functional equivalent.”
