Comments on: Free speech or securities fraud? Bridges, budgets, bonds Mon, 24 Nov 2014 00:29:08 +0000 hourly 1 By: TheFree_Lance Tue, 25 Jun 2013 16:28:28 +0000 This First Amendment dodge must be taught in school of government departments across the US. I’ve encountered it with bond referenda, excise tax votes — anything where the public is being asked to approve or disapprove a fiscal question, government officials and employees want to make a distinction between the office they hold and their advocacy as a private citizen.

Nevermind that almost all local government units in the US are set up as corporate entities, blatantly false and misleading statements are rolled out without consequence.
