FEC: No bitcoins in federal campaigns TheHill

Bitcoin - The Currency of the Internet

A community dedicated to Bitcoin, the currency of the Internet. Bitcoin is a distributed, worldwide, decentralized digital money. Bitcoins are issued and managed without any central authority whatsoever: there is no government, company, or bank in charge of Bitcoin. You might be interested in Bitcoin if you like cryptography, distributed peer-to-peer systems, or economics. A large percentage of Bitcoin enthusiasts are libertarians, though people of all political philosophies are welcome.

Is there a way to listen to the FEC Bitcoin meeting today via live audio/video stream?

I know the FEC posts select audio records of their open meetings, but I was curious if there was a livestream of the audio? I'm really curious about the meeting today discussing the use of Bitcoin for political donations.
EDIT: Turns out they added a live stream link on the page above: http://mfile.akamai.com/29099/live/reflector%3A52262.asx?bkup=48252

AMAA: Got questions re the FEC Bitcoin decision? I wrote the request.

Howdy all.
This is Sai, founder of Make Your Laws.
I wrote our request to the FEC regarding Bitcoin contributions to political campaigns, as well as our comments on CAF's request (which deadlocked last year).
There've been a bunch of stories about this lately; some excellent and accurate, some not as much.
If you have any questions, comments, etc., I'll be happy to answer 'em here.
PS Just in case: I'll consider any btc/doge tips here to be meant for me-personally, not MYL PAC, since MYL PAC can't accept anonymous contributions on Reddit. :-P
PPS FYI: as soon as we launch (I'm still coding!), you'll be able to donate BTC to any US political entity on our site (starting at the Federal level just for compliance / practicality reasons, then expanding).
Make an account & you'll get a beta invite. Coders/designers wanted; see the 4-slide tl;dr pdf.
Proof.

FEC.gov website doxes me for my $1 donation but elites can use dark fiat money groups to donate millions anonymously. But Bitcoin Bad!

A while back, I had donated $1 to a democrat, to keep their anti-war voice on the DNC debate stage.
I was under the (wrongful) impression that small donations were anonymous.
Nope, my name, employer, city, state, zip code, & donation are listed on the FEC.gov website.
https://www.fec.gov/data/receipts/individual-contributions/
Meanwhile, elites can donate millions anonymously through dark money groups.
Dark money In the politics of the United States, dark money refers to political spending by nonprofit organizations — for example, 501(c)(4) (social welfare) 501(c)(5) (unions) and 501(c)(6) (trade association) groups — that are not required to disclose their donors.[3][4] Such organizations can receive unlimited donations from corporations, individuals and unions. In this way, their donors can spend funds to influence elections, without voters knowing where the money came from. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dark_money
Seems like a rigged game, especially when individuals can be attacked or fired for their political beliefs.

But don't invest in Bitcoin, cause some poor criminals used it! /s

Help me liberate thousands of pages of TSA documents through FOIA

I have ongoing federal FOIA litigation against the TSA.
I've gotten thousands of pages of heavily redacted documents so far, and am fighting to get them unredacted.
In addition, I'm trying to get many thousands more pages of documents that they're withholding in full, primarily about policies and procedures. This includes stuff like:
Seriously, it's a lot.
I have until January 30 to file my biggest brief in the case — an opposition to their motion for summary judgment — and I need help.
I'm doing this on my own, which means I can't get a single cent for the many hours I've spent on this over the last three years, even if I totally win. (See Kay v Ehrler.)
Unlike the AUSA who's opposing me, I don't have a paralegal, legal researcher, dozens of agency staff working on it for three years, etc.
I just have me. I'm working on this because I think it's in the public interest. Plus, I'm poor and have multiple serious disabilities. It's not a fair fight.
In short, I need your help to even the odds.
What I need
  1. Paralegals, to research and draft arguments about various questions of law, e.g.:
    • how TSA's previous inadvertent disclosure of their screening SOP prevents them claiming their current SOPs are totally withholdable
    • how the Rehabilitation Act § 508 (the federal equivalent of the ADA) combines with the format requirements of FOIA, and require them to give me electronic records, original metadata, etc. rather than scans of printouts (seriously, that's their preferred redaction method)
  2. Document reviewers, to look through docs I've gotten to date, were disclosed in other cases, etc., and e.g.:
    • notice and catalogue other documents are mentioned or implied to exist but haven't been disclosed to me
    • read between the lines of various exemptions they've claimed so far to find out what's probably being hidden, what might be withheld because it's embarrassing, what's just plain BS, what might actually be a legitimate withholding, etc
    • reverse-engineer the redactions (and statistics) on a previously-secret study about TSA's "behavior detection" program
    • use Google-fu, PACER, etc to find out about other documents that should have been given to me but weren't, who the various people are that show up in documents, whether anything they're trying to withhold is available elsewhere, etc
  3. Journalists & editors to work with me on coordinated publishing of documents with writeups (embargoed on litigation considerations).
  4. People who work for the TSA, to help me with various things (as confidential sources). See my secure contact info @ https://s.ai/contact.
  5. Access to Westlaw or Lexis, e.g. to do Shepardization and other legal research — either directly (if someone can get me an account) or through someone looking things up for me.
  6. Money (via my Patreon, PayPal, or Bitcoin — to pay for my own costs of living, legal research (like PACER fees), and possibly to pay paralegals or document reviewers to do work for me.
Some caveats
  1. Because this is in active litigation, people working on this would have to sign a nondisclosure agreement.
    I need to fully control what is published (and when), make all the legal decisions, etc. Some things will need to stay private permanently, e.g. where it touches on my legal strategy or decisions.
    That said, I routinely make nearly all of my legal research public; I do open source work where I can; I make all legal filings in the case freely public; etc. I am being as open as I can, given the limitations of litigation.
  2. I want to have first publication rights, or at least credit, for resulting documents — i.e. to not get scooped after years of work.
    I intend to publish everything I get, except for a very small amount of stuff that's about me-personally.
    However, I want to delay publication while I'm fighting to get better documents (e.g. less redaction, better quality, etc). I also want to write it up journalistically (or make sure someone else is doing so), not just dump raw documents indiscriminately.
    For most of it, I'd be happy to simply give the documents to other journalists on embargo, so long as I get credit as the source. For a few things that are particularly high value or particular interest to me, I want my name on the byline.
  3. I might be able to recoup the costs of paying paralegals or document reviewers, but that's an open question of law.
    I'd be interested in e.g. contingency-based payment for people helping me, or contingent return of money for supporters funding significant amounts. However, I can't guarantee that I will get to stick the government with those costs, even if I win the case. (I will try, of course.)
My legal cred
I'm not (yet) a lawyer (I'm applying to law schools for fall 2017), but I do have significant legal experience, e.g.:

FEC Delays Decision on Allowing Bitcoin to Political Contributions (3-3 Deadlock)

For now there is no news on Draft D of the advisory opinion allowing Bitcions to be used for political contributions. The vote ended in a 3-3 deadlock. However the resounding consensus is that it will be an eventual "yes", its just the commission doesn't feel comfortable with their level of knowledge of bitcoin, and the state of the draft to open the floodgates.
