White House: Letter from CLC et al. to President Obama About Deadlock on the FEC
Letter written by the Campaign Legal Center, Americans for Campaign Reform, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW), Common Cause, Democracy 21, League of Women Voters, Public Citizen, Sunlight Foundation, and U.S. PIRG. The organizations urge Obama to repair the grave damage to the enforcement of federal campaign finance law that has been done by the spectacularly dysfunctional Federal Election Commission (FEC). In particular three of the six Commissioners have consistently refused to properly enforce and interpret the campaign finance laws which they ideologically oppose. This has served to paralyze the Commission and minimize its enforcement of the laws.
