Politics More On That “Loaned” Ad Time

Josh, blogging over at Horse’s Ass, has an update on KOMO’s “loan” of $180,000 in free air time to Republican US Rep. Dave Reichert. Apparently KIRO, too, has agreed to run Reichert’s ads on credit—an unusual practice that may not be illegal but sure looks like a campaign contribution. (FEC rules bar corporations from donating to candidates.) The Burner campaign, Josh writes, says they’re “exploring legal options” on the ads.
