Foreign offers of assistance to federal campaigns would have to be reported to law enforcement under a bill the House plans to take up this week. Other provisions in the “SHIELD Act” would require disclosures on online political ads similar to those in print or on television and would make social media platforms keep records of ad requests.
On this episode of Bloomberg Government’s “Suspending the Rules” podcast, legislative analyst Michael Smallberg and senior editor for money and politics Ken Doyle break down the bill, Republicans’ opposition to it, and its prospects in the Senate.
