The Bradys are planning on running this TV ad:

Video... http://www.bradycampaign.com/

Transcript... http://www.bradycampaign.org/press/release.php?release=598

" Announcer: "On September 13th, President Bush turned his back on the safety of all Americans."

(Video: same words as audio.)

Reporter shouts question: "Mr. President, why allow the assault weapons ban to expire without a fight?"

(Video: President Bush turns around and leaves.)

White House Press Staffer: "Bye, guys, thank you."

(Video: Press staffer steps in front of camera.)

Announcer: "He turned his back on the victims of violent crime."

(Video: Crime scene photos, President Bush turning around.)

Announcer: "On police officers gunned down on our streets."

(Video: Police funeral photos, President Bush turning around.)

Announcer: "On the fight against terrorists."

(Video: Photos of suspected terrorists)

Announcer: "When he let the assault weapons ban die,"

(Video: President Bush turning around, words on screen.)

President Bush turned his back on all of us.

(Video: Freeze frame of President Bush, words on screen - FEC legal statement.)

Announcer: "The Brady Voter Education Fund is responsible for the content of this advertisement."

How are they able to get away with this under the McCain/Feingold bill (Campaign Finance Reform Act)?

At the end of the video there's a "FEC legal statement", but it's illegible in the video on the website.

Anyone know what "loophole" enables them to do this?

It unless the viewer is a hardcore anti-gunner, it will be forgotten like yesterday's wet dream after the elections.
