Bernie Sanders super-secret dark money organization has been hit with a Federal Election Commission complaint, stating Sanders’ group is violating the law. It’s almost as if the Democrats believe the rules don’t apply to them.
A dark money group founded by Sen. Bernie Sanders is violating federal campaign finance law, according to a Federal Election Commission complaint filed Wednesday.
The political nonprofit group Our Revolution, which Sanders founded in 2016, has been violating the federal “soft money” ban by boosting his presidential campaign since its launch in February 2019, the complaint from the watchdog group Common Cause states.
It’s amazing to me that a man who spent his entire political life chastising “millionaires and billionaires” would put together a dark money conglomerate to funnel funds to politicians. The man is, and always has been, a fraud.
“Because Sanders set up Our Revolution and they have raised and spent money in candidate elections, Our Revolution is required to comply with contribution limits, register with the FEC and discloses its donors — but it hasn’t,” Common Cause attorney Paul S. Ryan told The Associated Press. “It’s his establishment of the group that triggers these laws. That means a $5,000 limit, full donor disclosure and no contributions from prohibited sources.”
I’d like to be excited at the prospects of Sanders being fined – or worse – but Ilhan Omar has “allegedly” playing with campaign contributions for a while now, and nothing has happened to her.
