Online political ads would have to meet the same standards as ones on radio and TV if a local congressman gets his way.
Republican Congressman Mike Gallagher of Green Bay is supporting a bill to increase transparency and accountability. He says Russia took advantage of Facebook in last year’s election.
Gallagher says it’s illegal for people in foreign countries to donate to political campaigns in the U.S. He says that guards against meddling.
The bill would require online ads to have disclaimers and reporting rules for the groups that buy them.
Gallagher was a guest on Fresh Take with Josh Dukelow yesterday.
