Not to be outdone by New York’s attempt at curtailing free speech California brought forth A.B. 1104, thankfully now the bill has been pulled for now. Designed to combat cyberfraud, the bill would have made a few annoying things and also even satire websites illegal. Then there is this,
18320.5. It is unlawful for a person to knowingly and willingly make, publish or circulate on an Internet Web site, or cause to be made, published, or circulated in any writing posted on an Internet Web site, a false or deceptive statement designed to influence the vote on either of the following:
(a) Any issue submitted to voters at an election.
(b) Any candidate for election to public office.
Perhaps the communists in California realized that the campaigns of many Democrats in California regularly make use of false or deceptive statements. The obvious unconstitutional aspect that many point out was probably not even considered since the left only cares about the constitution when they can use it as a weapon again their enemies.
