SOC emails breaks the law

August 22, 2006

SOC FairchildThe email in the post – SOC mass email – appears to break the anti-spam laws. The CAN-SPAM Act of 2003 requires a contact name, clear identification of the party emailing the piece, and a physical mailing address for the party sending out the email.

If Charles Fairchild sent the email, as it’s rumored, he may have also broken Florida campaign laws by not identifying the email as a campaign piece from the Save Our City PAC.

Why was he afraid to put his name on it? Why did he say its from “Waterfront Park” and not “Save Our City”?

    Mike West was contacted today and stated that Charles Firchild wrote the message. Any doubts?
