Score one for the "Great One" - Mark Levin!
The Federal Election Commission (FEC) made public its actions in six election law enforcement cases, including one that accused radio talk show host Mark Levin of violating federal law by urging listeners to make contributions to the campaign of Scott Brown in the special Massachusetts senatorial election.
The FEC determined that Citadel Broadcasting Corp. and host Mark Levin were immune from prosecution because the federal law exempts the news media from its prohibition against corporate spending in federal elections. This expands earlier FEC rulings that have held the exemption applies to news media activity that is normal and customary.
Levin, who calls most other radio show hosts 'Back-Benchers' - Glenn Beck included - is commonly referred to as the "Great One" by Sean Hannity & Rush Limbaugh. More often than not you will hear the morning and daytime conservative radio entertainers repeating things heard on Levin's broadcasts the night before.
Besides his brilliant mind and colorful commentary, Mark Levin is the author of "Liberty & Tyranny: A Conservative Manifesto" and "Men in Black: How the Supreme Court is Destroying America."
During President Reagan's years in office, Levin was an advisor to several Cabinet members, Chief of Staff for Attorney General Edwin Meese, Deputy Asst. Secretary for Elementary & Secondary Education with the Dept. of Education and Deputy Solicitor for the Dept. of Interior.
Are you wondering why Mark Levin would be a specific target and other radio hosts who did the same aren't? It may be because along with being a nationally syndicated radio host & best-selling book author, Levin is President of the Landmark Legal Foundation.
The Landmark Legal Foundation is a legal advocacy group focused on protecting individual rights, challenging the scope and authority of government, defending free enterprise, and exposing teachers' union fraud. The Legal Landmark Foundation has fought court battles against the National Education Association, the Democratic National Committee, the AFL-CIO, Emily's List, and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to name a few.
Most recently the Landmark Legal Foundation has filed Amicus Curiae Briefs (Friend of the Court) in several high profile lawsuits by states against the federal government.
One being in opposition of the Motion To Dismiss filed by the Dept. of Health & Human Services in the lawsuit brought forth by the State of Virginia challenging the Constitutionality of the forced health insurance mandate in the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare). The Motion To Dismiss was rejected and the case was allowed to proceed. The other is in support of Arizona's Immigration Law Appeal.
So you can say Mark Levin is a major "Pain in the A**" for the progressive & liberal movement as a whole! As Levin says... "That's right - there I said it!"
