[Ed. – Of course they did. They’ve never wanted the rule of law or a level playing field, and they don’t want those things now. Emphasis added.]
Filmmaker Joel Gilbert, owner of Highway 61 films, has produced several independent politically-themed movies and sent [his film Dreams of My Real Father: A Story of Reds and Deception] out to millions of voters in key swing states prior to the 2012 election.
While he acted on his own, and with no ties to political groups or parties, an FEC complaint was filed claiming he violated reporting rules, prompting him to seek the standard media “exemption.”
But despite giving the same exemption to liberal movie makers like Michael Moore and Daily Kos, the Democrats [on the FEC] recently voted against Gilbert in a February action, reviving their bid to punish conservative media, a campaign initially targeting online news outlets like the Drudge Report.
