Campaign Legal Center Receives MacArthur Foundation Award for Creative & Effective Institutions

 

The Legal Center has 10 years' experience defending and enforcing campaign finance, election and ethics laws.  There’s a lot to explain and keep straight given recent developments with Super PACs, changing laws, Citizens United, etc.   We think our reports, papers, and other documents will help you understand the different elements at play this cycle and how to make sense of it all.

FEC General Counsel's Findings & Recommendations to Investigate Ignored

On July 30, reform groups asked the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia to declare unlawful the dismissal of a complaint against the secretive political spending group Crossroads Grassroots Political Strategies (GPS) by the Federal Election Commission (FEC). The motion for summary judgment stems from the FEC’s failure to investigate Crossroads GPS for not registering as a political committee. The FEC Office of General Counsel had strongly recommended that the agency investigate in the face of evidence against the group but the Commission deadlocked along party lines leading to the dismissal of the complaint.
