FEC: Complaint Filed by CLC Against APIC


On August 10, 2016, Campaign Legal Center (CLC) filed a complaint to the Federal Election Commission (FEC) against Chinese-owned corporation American Pacific International Capital, Inc. (APIC) alleging that APIC had violated the prohibition on foreign nationals making contributions in connection with a federal election. APIC gave $1.3 million to a pro-Jeb Bush super PAC, Right to Rise.

Update: On March 11, 2019, CLC released a letter from the FEC announcing $940,000 in fines imposed as a result of CLC’s complaint.
