FEC Responds to Petition Concerning Deceptive Artificial Intelligence in Campaign Ads
On August 10, the Federal Election Commission moved a step closer to addressing “deliberately deceptive Artificial Intelligence (AI) campaign advertisements.”
On July 13, the commission had received a Petition for Rulemaking asking the FEC to make it clear that the related statutory prohibition applies to deliberately deceptive AI campaign advertisements.
In response, the FEC issued REG 2023-02 (Artificial Intelligence in Campaign Ads) Draft Notification of Availability to seek written public comments on the Petition.
The notification will be published in the Federal Register at a future date along with the deadline for comments, according to the FEC press release.
