RED ALERT: Florida Republicans want to force bloggers to "register" with the state

The state of Florida has proposed a new bill, which requires bloggers who write about the governor, legislators, or state officials to register with the state. The bill, proposed by Republican State Senator Jason Brodeur, also requires bloggers to disclose who is paying them and how much they are being paid. If a blogger posts about an elected state officer and receives compensation for the post, they must register with the appropriate office within five days of posting. Failure to register results in a fine of $25 a day, capped at $2,500 per post. This bill could quickly be expanded to include independent journalists, YouTubers, and others. The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) has deemed this proposal unconstitutional and a violation of free speech. Even former House Speaker Newt Gingrich has criticized the legislation as clearly against the First Amendment. This is the latest example of right-wingers going against free speech and the Constitution, while they claim to be their biggest supporters.
