act blue hiring legal in house counsel

Hey all, I received this not-your-average-job posting from another listserv and thought it looked interesting. Just an FYI

ActBlue
Democratic campaigns and committees. We're laying the groundwork for
aggressive targets in 2007-08: massive growth of our fundraiser
network, increased outreach to thousands of state level campaigns,
Since 2004 ActBlue has sent more than $30 million to over 2,000
and raising $100 million for Democratic candidates and committees.

To reach those goals we're seeking comrades-in-arms, so to speak --
super-sharp people who share our political goals, our commitment to
rock-solid dependability, our impatience with inefficiency, and our
commitment to serving as an honest broker for all Democratic
campaigns.

We are extremely selective in who we hire. You'll be working with a
close-knit team in a rather free-wheeling environment that rewards
initiative. Political or campaign experience is often helpful, but
not a requirement.

Position: Staff Counsel
Reports to: Executive Director
Responsibilities:

* Research of campaign finance laws and regulations at the federal,
state and local levels, with the goals of
- Ensuring ActBlue's compliance with all relevant laws and
regulations
- Expanding the jurisdictions in which ActBlue may operate

* Development and implementation of legal strategy to expand the
states in which ActBlue may operate

  • Administrative and regulatory Advisory Opinions
  • Advocating for legislative change

* In the service of the above, cultivating relationships with
election offices and local campaign finance attorneys

* Ensuring compliance with all applicable laws, including

  • Campaign finance filings at the federal and state level
  • IRS filings
  • State business filings as necessary
  • Campaign finance disclaimers and disclosures

* Responding to legal inquiries and complaints

* Assisting Communications Director by analyzing legal implications
of public statements

* And other tasks as necessary

You must be licensed to practice law in at least one U.S.
jurisdiction. (A license to practice in Massachusetts is desirable,
but not required.) No specific campaign finance experience required.

The positions is full-time in Boston. To apply, please send a cover
letter, resume, writing sample, and three references to
