DOJ: Letter from CLC & Democracy 21 regarding Freedom Works
Letter written to the Department of Justice by the Campaign Legal Center and Democracy 21. As detailed in the attached complaint, filed December 20 with the Federal Election Commission (FEC), the organizations have reason to believe, based on published reports, that Specialty Group Inc. and Kingston Pike Development LLC, as well as William S. Rose, Jr. and any other person(s) who created, operated and made contributions in the name of these two recently-created companies, may have violated 2 U.S.C. § 441f by making more than $12 million in 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.
