    require lists of all expenditures

    if they paid a blogger - it would already show up there,

    here's a line from Michele Bachmann's:

    PINNACLE DIRECT, INC.    FUNDRAISING: PRINTING AND POSTAGE    STILLWATER    MN    55082     12/12/2012     $549   
    RED PHONE CONSULTING    FUNDRAISING CONSULTING    MERINO    CO    80741     11/27/2012     $2,255   
    RESPONSE AMERICA, LLC    FUNDRAISING: DIRECT MAIL    ATHENS    GA    30601     12/05/2012     $3,650   
    SEVERSON, CATHY JO    MANAGEMENT CONSULTING    SAUK RAPIDS    MN    56379     11/30/2012     $2,000   
    SHORT, GUY    EXPENSE REIMBURSEMENT    ERIE    CO    80516     12/12/2012     $546   
    SOUTHWEST AIRLINES    AIRFARE    DALLAS    TX    75235     11/30/2012     $211    X

    So - yes - it's a good thing. If the campaigns should disclose more - please speak up. It's placing no requirement on the bloggers - it's placing it on the campaigns.
