Free and Fair

The Wall Street Journal, of all outlets, is doing a good job of following the current limbo-status of the Federal Elections Commission. Right now, complying with campaign-finance rules is just about voluntary. That, of course, works well. For a bi-partisan example:

...the quorum-less FEC has been unable to issue a ruling on a new law requiring lobbyists to disclose when they “bundle” more than $15,000 a year for congressional candidates. Without a formal ruling, neither party has yet to fully comply with the intent of the law.

Fix the FEC.
