Campaign Finance Red Tape - the bane of political action

The libertarian leaning Institute for Justice has just published this report of a study of campaign finance requirements in three states. Result? All participants committed errors sufficient to warrant penalties. Most could not complete even half of the tasks required for full compliance.

Of course, here in Washington the PDC cheerfully provides technical assistance to those who ask. But that begs the question, why are the requirements so complicated that technical assistance should be needed?
