FACT Amends Complaint Against Clinton Campaign For Obtaining Super PAC List
The Washington Examiner reported that the Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust (FACT) has filed an amended FEC complaint demanding a review of how Hillary Clinton’s campaign was able to obtain a Super PAC’s donor email list:
A watchdog group is asking the Federal Election Commission to review whether Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign legally obtained a massive email list from a political action committee associated with the candidate.
The Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust pressed the FEC Monday on how the Clinton campaign was able to “swap” unknown items for a collection of nearly 4 million supporters’ email addresses that had been compiled by the Ready for Hillary super PAC.
“Federal law explicitly prohibits a candidate from coordinating with and accepting donations, including an in-kind donation of a mailing list, from a super PAC,” wrote Matthew Whitaker, FACT’s executive director, in a letter Monday supplementing a complaint filed in April.
