FEC Democrat Pushes for Foreign Campaign Money Rules

A Democrat on the Federal Election Commission (FEC) is renewing her push for FEC Rules to Prevent Foreign Campaign spending following an announcement from the Senate Intelligence Committee confirming Russian Election Meddling.

“There is no doubt that Russia undertook an unprecedented effort to interfere with our 2016 elections,” the Senate Committee said.

Ellen Weintraub, the FEC’s Vice Chairwoman, said She would call for consideration of a New Rulemaking effort at the FEC’s next Open Meeting May 24th.

Weintraub acknowledged that divisions between Democratic and Republican Commissioners have prevented the FEC from agreeing on New Rules in the past. She said the Bipartisan agreement on the Senate Intelligence Committee, headed by Chairman Richard Burr (R-NC) and Vice Chairman Mark Warner (D-VA), provided “hope that the urgency of this threat will finally conquer the partisan divide at the FEC.”
