Email to Congressman Grayson about his "America is for American Act".

Congressman Grayson,
It is already illegal for foreign corporations or foreign persons to contribute to elections here in the U.S. Your "America is for Americans Act", what a stupid name, is already law. Judge Alido was correct when he mouthed the words, "not true" at the SOTU address.

“The Federal Election Campaign Act (FECA) prohibits any foreign national from contributing, donating or spending funds in connection with any federal, state, or local election in the United States, either directly or indirectly. It is also unlawful to help foreign nationals violate that ban or to solicit, receive or accept contributions or donations from them. Persons who knowingly and willfully engage in these activities may be subject to fines and/or imprisonment.

Who is a Foreign National?

The following groups and individuals are considered "foreign nationals" and are, therefore, subject to the prohibition:

Foreign governments;
Foreign political parties;
Foreign corporations;
Foreign associations;
Foreign partnerships;
Individuals with foreign citizenship; and
Immigrants who do not have a "green card."

Please spend your efforts with more meaningful legislation, like trying to rein in spending, cutting taxes for everyone, including the top earners, which I am not one, and making sure our country is safe from outside and inside threats.

Oh who am I kidding!!
