NewtonForum.org has been purchasing Facebook ads to promote City Councilor Amy Sangiolo’s latest campaign ad. I’m not an expert in campaign finance laws but something tells me this may constitute an illegal or at least improper campaign donation.

UPDATE: In a comment below Newton Forum’s Chris Pitts reported late Monday that he has rectified this situation after consulting with the state election office. As a result the Sangiolo campaign will be reporting Newton Forum’s paid Facebook ads as an $30.00 in-kind campaign contribution in its next finance report.
