FreedomWorks Foundation program manager Patrick Hedger released the following statement after more than 4,000 FreedomWorks Foundation activists made individualized comments to the FEC supporting free speech:
"FreedomWorks Foundation’s activists voiced their opinions loud and clear to FEC that even the prospect of government regulation of online political speech is unacceptable and in total conflict with the First Amendment. Quite simply, if you regulate anything, you get less of it. That applies to speech as well. FEC shouldn’t be chilling online speech, intentionally or otherwise."
