Illinois Democrat May Have Broken Campaign Finance Laws
Highland Park Mayor Nancy Rotering, who launched a primary challenge to former Democratic Congressman Brad Schneider in Illinois’ 10th Congressional district, has recently come under fire for potentially illegal campaign fundraising operations.
A complaint filed with the FEC by the non-profit watchdog group FACT alleges that Rotering received contributions to her congressional campaign in excess of $5,000 as early as January 2015, but did not officially register with the FEC until March. Rotering’s campaign has been dogged by these accusations since she announced her candidacy in March with already $400,000 in the bank, but has not officially been held accountable for her actions – until now.
Rotering’s campaign schedule over the July Fourth holiday may not be as sunny as she may have hoped.
