I also mentioned that if DiIanni is going to run the blog might be considered a campaign contribution since it is provided free of charge.

IANAL but I find that pretty dubious. For one thing, Di Ianni wrote those posts long before running (assuming he decides to register). For another, the cost of hosting someone else's content on an existing site is effectively nil. Ecklund would have a more credible claim that Di Ianni is doing him a favour by providing free content that will drive traffic to Ecklund's site.

It's unfortunate that the content was taken down, as it would give voters valuable insights into Di Ianni's political values and ideas over the past few years. If I were Di Ianni, I'd be asking Chris to send me the articles so I could repost them on my own site.
