CLC Complaint to FEC Against Iowa Values


CLC filed a complaint with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) alleging that Iowa Values violated campaign finance law by failing to register as a political committee and file required reports with the FEC. The complaint outlines a number of facts, including a fundraising appeal, a strategy memo, and digital ads that the group ran, that appear to show that Iowa Values, a 501(c)(4) organization, has the major purpose of influencing the re-election of U.S. Senator Joni Ernst and therefore should have registered as a political committee.
