Gingrich-Pelosi "Global Warming" Ad Probably Broke Campaign Finance Laws [someone]

Because Pelosi has a primary next month:

“It's prohibited,” a Republican campaign finance lawyer, Jan Baran, said. He said the ad constitutes a "coordinated" expenditure on behalf of Ms. Pelosi's campaign by the group sponsoring the ad, the Alliance for Climate Protection. Any ad of that sort distributed in a candidate’s district within 90 days of a congressional primary or general election is deemed a campaign donation, Mr. Baran said.

"She's in the ad. That means it's coordinated," a Republican attorney who battles to overturn campaign finance laws, James Bopp Jr., said. "I'm a guy that specializes in loopholes. I don't know of any loopholes."

The "Alliance" is a Goracle operation. So the best part?
The ad could also trigger a requirement for Mr. Gore’s group to report publicly on its donors, campaign finance lawyers said.
Ha ha ha. Did Newt take part in this shameful charade to get Nancy in trouble? Well, that's too much to hope. But the actual results may be sufficiently hilarious.
