But we need your help though to get us to our comment goal. Tell the FEC to stop the coordinated spending that is poisoning our elections! The 2014 election was the most expensive mid-term election in our history. Super PACs raised and spent more than $600 million dollars in 2014 to elect candidates who will do their bidding and defeat those who might resist. They were able to do so because they are suppposedly "independent" from the candidates, but in reality, there are many ways to coordinate that are not blocked by the FEC's weak regulations. In addition, millions of dollars of secret money from dark money groups poured into the politica ...

ROCKFORD — State Rep.

Senate Joint Resolution 42 makes an application to Congress calling for a constitutional convention for the purpose of considering an amendment to the Supreme Court’s Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission ruling, which has led to an increase in unregulated and unmonitored political spending by special interest groups. If two-thirds of all states submit similar applications to Congress, a constitutional convention will be called to consider proposed amendments. Currently, California and Vermont have also passed applications, and 13 other states have passed nonbinding resolutions calling for an amendment.

The payments are described as "Reimbursed Expenses - Campaign Walkers." Regulation 11 CFR 116.5 expressly defines funds advanced by campaign staff for any reason other than travel or subsistence as a loan. It is illegal under FEC rules to loan money to a campaign in excess of the contribution limit of $2,600. "[I]f your loan exceeds the limits, it is an illegal contribution, even if it is later repaid in full," notes the FEC website.

FROM THE NEWSROOM: HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Lawyers for former Connecticut Gov. John Rowland are arguing that some of the federal charges he faces are unconstitutional. They filed new arguments Monday night seeking to have much of the case against the 57-year-old former governor dismissed. Rowland is accused of trying to create secret paid consultant roles with two congressional campaigns in 2010 and 2012. Charges include conspiracy, falsifying records in a federal investigation, causing false statements to be made to the Federal Election Commission, and causing illegal campaign contributions. He has pleaded not guilty. Among other things, Rowland's lawyers argue that campaign finance restrictions cited by the government are unconstitutional based on recent U.S. Supreme Court rulings. They also argue that some finance limits cited by the government only apply to contributions, not to campaign expenditures.

Dinesh D’Souza, the conservative filmmaker and author behind the widely-debunked and discredited film 2016: Obama’s America pleaded guilty on Tuesday to a charge of illegally contributing to a New York Republican’s U.S. Senate campaign in the names of other donors. D’Souza, an array of prominent Republican politicians, and several Fox News personalities had earlier dismissed the charges as mere political retaliation for his criticisms of the Obama administration. In January, D’Souza was indicted at the request of the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York for his 2012 donations to Wendy Long’s unsuccessful Senate campaign against Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY). The charges were that he had circumvented federal campaign finance limits by reimbursing associates for $20,000 worth of contributions made in their own names to Long’s campaign. He was also charged with making false statements to the Federal Election Commission in the straw donor scheme — a charge that will ...

Federal Election Commission approves donations to political action committees
Kickstarter recent Supreme Court Decision to allow for unlimited campaign contributions has brought to our attention that we the people need to track these contributions more closely. Elections Candidates and committees are required to report all contributions and spendings to the FEC, which publishes this data. The problem is that this data is very esoteric, hard to process and full of small errors. It is also a lot of data. We need better tools to process it. While working on some small project for the Rootstrikers I discovered that it is very hard to figure out where the money is coming from. And this week, after seeing the incredible success of to raise $487,367 in four days, and seeing how people are still not able to track campaign contributions easily I want to raise money to fund my work on Federal Election Commission (FEC) data. The goal of the project is to create an big and open access and open format data site hosting all the Federal Election Commission (FEC) campaign data, us ...

Dear Federal Election Commission: Please enforce the harshest sanctions on
IMPORTANT TO KNOW THAT CONGRESS CREATED THE FEC to regulate certain things in favor of what they MIGHT WISH. CONGRESS knows that people are on to them and on to the ADMINISTRATION who are ran by Congress and CONGRESS is bought by different people/things/organizations. WHO IS THE FEC? WHAT IS THE FEC? FEC was created in 1975, right along campaign time for one of the nightmare POTUS of the U.S. which was Carter. The Federal Election Commission (FEC) is an independent regulatory agency that was founded in 1975 by the United States Congress to regulate the campaign finance legislation in the United States. It was created in a provision of the 1975 amendment to the Federal Election Campaign Act. It describes its duties as "to disclose campaign finance information, to enforce the provisions of the law such as the limits and prohibitions on contributions, and to oversee the public funding of Presidential elections."[1] THIS IS KEY FOLKS: The Commission is made up of six members, who are appointed by the Presiden ...
“[C]ampaign finance laws recognize that the First Amendment, which seeks to maintain a marketplace of political ideas and a ‘chain of communication between the people,’ and their representatives, cannot serve its purpose unless the public opinion it protects is able to influence government opinion. Campaign finance laws recognize that large money contributions can break that chain. When money calls the tune, those ideas, representing the voices of the people, will not be heard.” - Justice Bryer, in his dissent in McCutcheon v. Federal Election Commission, decided April 2nd, 2014. Alas, it is time for constitutional amendment.
Climate Change? Who to believe ? Follow the Money. Koch Industries, ExxonMobil, and other companies lavished tens of millions of dollars on a network of think tanks, advocacy groups and academic centers to sow doubt about climate science and attack renewable energy. They also plied federal candidates with more than $300 million in campaign contributions and spent more than $105 million on lobbying, according to Federal Election Commission data compiled by the Center for Responsive Politics.
INTERESTING: US Professors: Proof USA is so corrupt in 2014 it is not a democracy Gangster State America Where Is America’s Democracy? Anyone who looks carefully behind the veil of words cannot find democracy in America. For years I have been writing that the US government is no longer accountable to law or to the people (see, for example, my book, How America Was Lost). The Constitution has been set aside, and the executive branch is degenerating into Caesarism. Government is used to impose agendas that result from the symbiotic relationship between the neoconservative ideology of US world hegemony and the economic interests of powerful private interest groups, such as Wall Street, the military/security complex, the Israel Lobby, agribusiness, and extractive industries (energy, mining, and timber). Dollar imperialism, threats, bribes, and wars are means by which US hegemony is extended. These agendas are pursued without the knowledge or approval of the American people and in spite of their opposition. ...

It's been an incredible month. Our field team has been on the ground, contacting voters, going door to door, and getting an incredible response. During our April Day of Action, volunteers from all across Georgia helped us reach out to thousands of Georgia voters – and that was just in one day! We are truly making inroads towards building a grassroots infrastructure the likes of which Georgia has never seen before - but we still have a long ways to go and a huge deadline ahead of us. There are less than 28 hours until our April 30 pre-primary deadline and we’re $9,045 short of our $50,000 online goal. Can you contribute $10 or more right now to help make up the difference? This is the last Federal Election Commission report that our campaign will file before our May primary – you can determine the story that it tells. Hitting our fundraising goal tells the country what you and I already know: Georgia voters are excited about our campaign and with a strong field program we can make history. Please con ...

FEDERAL COMMUNICATIONS COMMISSION, APPELLEE” United States Court of Appeals FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA CIRCUIT, Decided January 14, 2014 to make adjustment in his net neutrality POLICY! I have said it BEFORE and I will say it again until YOU HEAR IT! Take our COUNTRY back from 5 Black Robed Royalist persons on the Supreme Court and their Article III Brother persons legislating from the bench with self-servingly asserted "absolutely immune" as the would be Kings that THINK they can do no wrong!

What is Chief Justice Roberts' opinion from the bench re: money and US politics ( excerpt from the recent Supreme Court ruling McCutcheon vs FEC. ) "...Ingratiation and access [by the wealthy to politicians] are not corruption . no matter how desirable it may seem, it is not an acceptable governmental objective to level the playing field or to level electoral opportunities or to equalize the financial resources of candidates." Ouch. So in the Court's majority opinion, Any effort by Congress or the Federal Election Commission to govern, manage or control big money effect on political campaign speech is "not acceptable" . That's your Court. This seems over the top and does not feel very good. Link below is a podcast for those who want to consider the significance. Dan Carlin does some great history podcasts too.
