I think this is pretty funny:

A conservative advocacy group says Michael Moore’s Bush-bashing movie Farenheit 911 violates federal election law, and on Wednesday, the group is taking its complaint straight to the doorstep of the Federal Election Commission.

David N. Bossie, president of Citizens United, said he will hold a press conference at 10:30 a.m. today to release details of the complaint and explain which laws were broken.

Moore’s new movie, which premieres Wednesday night in Washington, D.C., blames the Bush administration for failing to prevent the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks; it mocks the administration’s contention that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction; and it says President Bush allowed Osama bin Laden’s relatives to fly out of the country after the Sept. 11 attacks because of Bush’s rumored relationship with Saudi officials.

“Moore has publicly indicated his goal is to impact this election season,” said a press release issued by Citizens United.

I do hope it isn’t successful for free speech issues, but at the same time he gets what he deserves from it.
