DOJ: Letter from CLC & Democracy 21 regarding Eli Publishing Complaint


As detailed in the attached complaint, filed December 20 with the Federal Election Commission (FEC), the Campaign Legal Center and Democracy 21, have reason to believe, based on published reports, that Steven J. Lund and Eli Publishing, L.C., may have violated 2 U.S.C. § 441f by making contributions to the political committee FreedomWorks for America in the names of Specialty Group Inc. and Kingston Pike Development LLC—rather than in the names of the true source(s) of the funds. These two companies may have also violated 2 U.S.C. § 441f by knowingly permitting their names to be used for the making of such contributions.
