Complaint alleges Louisiana company made illegal donation to conservative super PAC
Alpha Marine Services, a subsidiary of Edison Chouest Offshore of Galliano, gave the money to the Congressional Leadership Fund while the company held a federal government contract, according to a complaint from the Campaign Legal Center. The nonpartisan group pushes for the enforcement of campaign laws. Its complaint, filed Thursday (Feb. 21), seeks sanctions against Alpha Marine, including potential civil penalties. Brendan Fischer, Director of the Campaign Legal Center’s federal reform program, said comparable prior complaints have led recipients to return money to the offending donor.
