Law:The Draconian Campaign Publicity Act
Editing The Draconian Campaign Publicity Act
The Cosâ hereby provides for the public's right to know in the field of election campaigns by enacting the following into law:
Because it is unethical and unTalossan to conduct "secret" election campaigns hidden from voters, historians, and journalists, the Cosâ hereby stands RESOLVED: The dissemination of "Political Adverts" (written political advertisements, mailings, formal appeals for votes, and all similar documents which the Cort considers to be variations thereof) is regulated according to the following law. 1) Political Adverts may be distributed as part of a package along with national ballots, in such a manner that every citizen receiving a ballot receives the same Political Adverts; 2) Political Adverts may also (or instead) be disseminated by publishing them in reputable Talossan newspapers. (For the purpose of this Act, a "reputable" newspaper is defined as one that has published continuously for at least one year, with a minimum of ten issues per year and a minimum of seven subscribers. This provision is included to prevent people from slapping a masthead onto an Advert and calling it a "newspaper.") 3) The use of mail, hand-delivery, fax, or any other means to evade rules 1 and/or 2, as given above, is a criminal offence which shall be punished by deprivation of Cosâ seats or other appropriate measures as the Cort shall inflict.
