Democrat Federal Election Commissioners Ellen Weintraub and Ann Ravel have made clear they are Democrats first and FEC Commissioners second. Earlier we detailed how they went after Fox News but not CNN for the debates. Now they are attending the political party conventions for different purposes. At the Republican Convention last week, they snooped around looking for violations.

Rocking out to Paul Simon aside and not to take away the fun of the Commissioners, but the possible double standard is scary in light of their actions and declarations by Commissioner Ravel, such as “My role in the commission is not to apply constitutional principles” like the First Amendment.
