Richard Jasper John Rowe Wesley Eitei "Twas brilllg, and the FEC..." By Reed Larson Conte. let us go down. and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another  speech. Genesis 11:7 It has been said, and probably rightly so, that the Federal Elec- tion Commission (FEC) is man's answer to God's "confusion of the tongues." It's almost as if the givers of the law, seeing that man was fashioning a political system that was simple, straightforward, and--worst of all--workable, counseled among themselves to "go down, and there confound their language." The FEC's unmit!gated doubletalk about union political spend- ing is a case in point. The FEC has declared, fiat out, without reservation, that organized labor cannot--and of course, there- fore, does not--use forced union dues for political purposes. As sidekick par excellence Ed McMahon would say, "That's that. There's nothing more to say. Everything that can be said has been said." Well, not quite. The FEC also says that the union hierarchy can use forced union dues for a whole host of internal, independent, in-kind, indirect expenditures on behalf of union.favored politicians. Now if that sounds like organized labor usin{ forced union dues for political purposes, itls obvious that you re one of the 200 million plus who doesnt understand federal election law in general, or the FEC in particular. But don't feel bad; if the American people could understand their own federal election laws, there'd be no need to have the FEC around to misunder- stand them for us. Maybe some examples will clear things up. In 1976, the AFL-CIO sent out a controversial 60-million-piece political mailing that was paid for with compulsory union dues .e., money taken from workers as a condition of continued employment. At 10 cents a piece, that one political mailing cost $6 million. Yet the FEC says unions can't--and therefore, don't---use com- pulsory dues for political purposes. Is it getting clearer? That same year, the WALL STREET JOURNAL reported in its October S edition that the International Association of Machinists union had ordered its entire national field staff to "drop all other work between now and November 2 and focus ou getting members to vote." That effort, too. was financed with compulsory dues dollars--and the IAM's national field staff's salary amounts to over $1.5 million a month. Yet the FEC has assured us all that Big Labor can'tand therefore, doesn't--use compulsory dues for politics. Still not entrel clear9 Well ' ' Y , maybe just one more example will bring it all into focus. The July 1979 issue of STEELABOR, the official newspaper of the United Steelworkers of America union, offered its readers a surprisingly candid and straightforward explanation of forced dues politicking. Union treasury money, reported the union a er, "can't go for direct political contributious--but it can doP Pot: Mailings supportin or opposin$ political candidates, phone banks, precmet vistts, voter registration and get-out-the-vote drives .... " Thank goodness, the FEC has declared that unions can'tand of course, therefore, don'tuse compulsory dues for political pur- poses. All of this, I trust, is perfectly clear and, of course sets the record perfectly straight. In short, the FEC has declared that unions can't--and therefore don't--use forced dues for politics, but that they eanand therefore do--use forced dues for internal, in- dependent, in-kind, indirect, expenditures on behalf of political candidates. Still don't quite see the difference? Well, neither do Senator Jesse Helms (R-NC), Representative William Dickinson (R-AL) and several dozen other congressmen That's why late last month they sponsored a bill in Congress that would force the FEC to knock off the gobbledygook and forbid forced dues politicking in any way, shape or form. The Compulsory Campaign Contribution's Act of 1980 would close the loopholes in ideral election law which now allow the union hierarchy to spend a worker's compulsory union dues on candidates and causes the worker himself often abhors. To put it simply, no more FEC mumbo-jumbo about 'internal, independ. ent, in-kind, indirect, etc., etc.. etc." Two hundred years ago, Thomas Jefferson cut through all the iffl.e about compulsory tribute by writing "To compel a man to rmsn contributions for the propagation of opinions which he disbelieves and abhors is sinful andtyrannical." One can't help but feel that had the FEC been about its business el'confusing the tongues in Jettrson's day. the entire body would have risen as if with one voice and indignantly replied: "'Twos brillig, uttd the slithy to)'s Did g.vre and gimble in the wabe: All mintsy were the borogos And the ntome raths outgrabe . ,.
