New FEC Charge Against McCain, Will Also Go Univestigated by Broken FEC


fec-closed250x200.jpg Right-leaning legal group Judicial Watch has filed a new FEC complaint against John McCain alleging that a London fundraiser may have involved illegal in-kind contributions from foreign nationals.

This of course will join the growing list of complaints that will go uninvestigated by the broken FEC. How many of these have to filed until the pressure on Senate Majority Leader Reid and Senate Minority Leader McConnell is so great they are forced to break their gridlock and staff the FEC? Due to a near-complete lack of public concern on the subject, I’m guessing… infinity.

THANK YOU.

We recently wrapped up the crowdfunding campaign for our ambitious Mother Jones Corruption Project, and it was a smashing success. About 10,364 readers pitched in with donations averaging $45, and together they contributed about $467,374 toward our $500,000 goal.

That's amazing. We still have donations from letters we sent in the mail coming back to us, so we're on pace to hit—if not exceed—that goal. Thank you so much. We'll keep you posted here as the project ramps up, and you can join the hundreds of readers who have alerted us to corruption to dig into.
