Politico New Jersey: Dark money fuels pro-Fulop super PAC


Paul S. Ryan, deputy executive director of the Campaign Legal Center, said the donation may violate a federal law that states "no person shall make a contribution in the name of another person or knowingly permit his name to be used to effect such a contribution and no person shall knowingly accept a contribution made by one person in the name of another person."

He said the word “person” also applies to companies.

“It doesn’t look like that DE First Holdings would have engaged in sufficient legitimate business activity to generate its own money that its directors could choose to contribute a political committee,” said Ryan. “Instead, it looks like this thing was set up for the purpose of laundering money to a political committee while hiding the true source of the funds.”
