BREAKING: Dem Accused of Violating Finance Law on Election Eve
Randy DeSoto for The Western Journal reports:
A pro-Trump super PAC has filed a Federal Election Commission complaint against Pennsylvania U.S. House candidate Democrat Conor Lamb, alleging unlawful coordination between outside groups and his campaign.
Lamb is facing Republican Rick Saccone in a highly contested special election for the seat in the 18th congressional district near Pittsburgh.
According to the complaint filed Monday by the Committee to Defend the President, Lamb unlawfully signed multiple emails for the liberal super PAC End Citizens United, which directed recipients to fundraising pages soliciting contributions that were not for his campaign committee.
The scheme appears to violate FEC anti-coordination provisions between PACs and political campaigns, as well as election cycle limitations on contributions candidates can receive and disclaimer requirements.
Political prognosticators have consistently rated the race a toss-up.
