ABSTRACT
The article reports on the nullification of various regulations from the Federal Election Commission (FEC) by the District Court in Washington D.C. on September 12, 2007. Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly ruled that the policies of FEC on coordinated communications, voter registration and get-out-the-vote activity intend to undermine the law.
