Back in April, Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders accused nominee Hillary Clinton of violating election laws but he backed off the charges later, and nothing came from it. A nonpartisan group is holding Clinton’s feet to the fire and hopefully they get burned with this major violation. It seems she taking money from a Super PAC that’s is virtually an extension of her campaign. This Super PAC is instructing and training workers to help her. That’s against the law.
This lady just can’t play fair, can she?
A nonpartisan watchdog group Thursday called for a federal investigation of Hillary Clinton’s campaign committee, accusing it of illegally accepting millions of dollars worth of “opposition research” and other assistance from Correct the Record, an outside super-PAC, in violation of U.S. election laws.
The Campaign Legal Center also filed complaints with the Federal Election Commission to initiate probes of Donald Trump’s campaign, and two super-PACs backing it, for similar violations of laws barring “coordination” between political campaigns and outside groups.
But the Campaign Legal Center’s detailed 52-page complaint against Hillary for America and Correct the Record — part of the sprawling political empire run by Clinton backer David Brock — is likely to get special attention, given Clinton’s repeated advocacy of campaign finance reform. She has vowed to “curb the influence of big money in American politics” and to push for a constitutional amendment to overturn Citizens United — the controversial ruling that opened the door for groups such as Correct the Record to accept unlimited donations to benefit political candidates.
Correct the Record, which has taken in over $6 million in this campaign from hedge-fund executives, plaintiffs’ lawyers and other wealthy donors, has effectively become a “parallel shadow” arm of the Clinton campaign, said Larry Noble, who served for 13 years as the chief legal counsel for the FEC and is now chief counsel of the Campaign Legal Center. “They’re training people [for the Clinton campaign], they’re doing research for it. They’ve really pushed the envelope in this case, and ripped it open.”
As usual, I hope something comes from this and who knows maybe this will stick. We have to keep telling you what’s out there and how the politicians are screwing up and cheating the American public or we’re not doing our job.
