Wonder how he designates their value to the IRS for campaign funding.  Price at the time of receiving the coins?  Are they converted to fiat instantly?

Probably. That's what the FEC advised. They advise against using Bitcoin as a currency. ::) http://saos.nictusa.com/aodocs/201315.pdf

The big story here is that Congressman Stockman (who supports BTC, firearms, freedom in general and has a Ron Paul view on the FED) is running a primary against current US Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) and the winner will be the next Senator. First off, this man Stockman could be our BTC Ace in the US Senate as many parts of the American public are tired of incumbents and a growing portion of republicans are tired of Republicans In Name Only (RINOs) that run as conservatives yet govern like democrats. To give everyone an idea of just how bad Cornyn is, he's a high ranking slob that needs a good ass whooping aided and abetted by us BTC Spartans.

His worst votes can be found in detail ->http://www.freedomworks.org/blog/jwithrow/senator-john-cornyns-top-ten-bad-votes (http://www.freedomworks.org/blog/jwithrow/senator-john-cornyns-top-ten-bad-votes) but I'll list them in brief:

1 - Voted to Let Harry Reid Fund ObamaCare
2 - Voted for the Wall Street Bailout (T.A.R.P.)
3 - Voted for Medicare Part D
4 - Voted to Increase the Federal Minimum Wage
5 - Voted for the Fiscal Cliff Tax Hike
6 - Voted against Fiscally Conservative Budgets (Sens. Paul's & Lee's)
7 - Supported Intrusive Internet Regulations (PIPA)
8 - Voted to Allow Warrantless Data Collection on American Citizens
9 - Voted to Raise the Debt Ceiling Eight Times
10- Voted to Reauthorize the Patriot Act

In short, I highly recommend (American BTC folk) donating whatever they can spare to help Rep Stockman take down and embarrass this kleptocrat Cornyn once and for all and send a shot across the bow of the hoi polloi club in the US Senate. This will also aid top shelf Senators Paul, Lee and Cruz and give a much needed ally to Sen Paul when he decides to run for President in 2016.
