We are educating the media and politicians that the Federal Election Commission is not the only way to enforce campaign finance laws. In fact, the Federal Election Campaign Act gives concurrent jurisdiction to the Department of Justice to use criminal enforcement provisions to hold violators accountable. Yesterday, after we sent out our press release, we received several calls from national reporters surprised that they did not know this important fact.
Just last week, Congressman Chris Van Hollen sued the FEC for failing to follow the law regarding disclosure of donations to these (c)(4) groups, and President Obama prepared an executive order requiring companies doing business with the federal government to reveal any donations of more than $5,000. Today we issued a press release strongly urging the President to sign that executive order and ignore the opposition by the Chamber of Commerce and Senate GOP leadership.
