CLC Comment on Advisory Opinion Request Seeking to Convert Leadership PAC to Authorized Committee


Campaign Legal Center (CLC) submitted a letter to the Federal Election Commission (FEC) on a draft advisory opinion that would approve a federal candidate’s request to convert his leadership PAC back to an authorized committee. In its letter, CLC notes that the Commission should consider this request very carefully, as other federal candidates may seek to use this advisory opinion to use leadership PACs and other multicandidate committees to fund a campaign for federal office.
