   Cranston RI Mayor Steve Laffey has been ordered by the RI State Board of 
Elections to end his weekly radio show on WPRO (630 Providence), ruling that 
the free airtime he receives (he's not receiving any pay from WPRO for his 
hosting duties) and his name recognition amounts to an in-kind contribution 
by a corporation to a sitting officeholder.

   Here's a link to an article about this matter in the Providence Journal 
(Please note: you may have to register on the paper's website to access the
