The Washington Post: The Fix Juanita Broaddrick’s other debate-night claim could be trouble for Breitbart News


Larry Noble, general counsel at the Campaign Legal Center in Washington, said that if Breitbart were to have paid for Broaddrick's travel, “they might argue it was part of some deal where they were putting on the event as part of a story, and they were in control. But that doesn't seem to fit the facts. I think paying for someone to travel to participate in a campaign event falls outside the media exemption.”

Noble added, however, that “there is little likelihood the FEC would find four votes to do anything about it.” The six-member commission is composed of three Republicans and three Democrats, meaning at least one Republican would have to vote to investigate Breitbart.
