Tech Policy Talks: Regulating Political Ad Spending

Despite federal laws requiring transparency, much political campaign spending is obscured by regulations that exempt advertising agencies, consultancies, and other sub-vendors from reporting their spending on behalf of political clients.

The Center on Science & Technology Policy and the Campaign Legal Center will host a virtual panel discussion on the regulations that govern federal reporting of political sub-vendor spending. Offering insight from across sectors, the panel will outline current regulations, consider their implications on public transparency, and evaluate potential reforms.

Panelists:

Shana Broussard, Chair of the Federal Election Commission

Tatenda Musapatike, Founder and CEO at Voter Formation Project

Brendan Fischer, Director of Federal Reform at the Campaign Legal Center

Jordan Lieberman, VP & General Manager, Politics & Public Affairs, a4 media
