The Huffington Post: See The Amazing Campaign Contortionists Twist The Finance Rules
Larry Noble, legal counsel for the Campaign Legal Center, has written that he, and other campaign finance lawyers, “think no such loophole exists and that it is illegal for Correct the Record to spend money in coordination with the campaign.”
The Clinton campaign and Correct the Record have essentially placed a bet, Noble says, that the ideologically divided FEC will take no action on any complaint filed over this matter. It’s safe to predict they are correct.
Groups supportive of campaign finance limits filed numerous complaints with the FEC over Bush’s role in creating Right to Rise USA. Ultimately, two of those groups, Democracy 21 and the Campaign Legal Center, called for the Justice Department to investigate the super PAC scheme.
