Bye-bye Soros Money?

Looks like the Dem strategy to leverage 527s for money to compete with the Repubs may become inoperative:
Federal election lawyers have concluded tax-exempt political groups cannot spend donations from businesses, unions and people who write big checks to promote federal candidates, threatening a strategy Democrats hoped would keep them competitive with the GOP.

The Federal Election Commission is expected to consider the attorneys' recommendation next week.
If John Kerry is the nominee (heaven help us), maybe my $$ should go to one of these groups. (It's definitely not going to Kerry and it's not going to the DNC.)
