You remember One America Votes.
The story isn’t over. My friend and Washington state blogger/watchdog Stefan Sharkansky — who has successfully exposed election fraud before — scoured campaign finance records and found that OAV apparently failed to file as a registered political committee.
He has sent a formal complaint to the state Public Disclosure Commission.
Read the scoop at Sound Politics and be sure to click the link for the PDF of his filing:
Although the group was clearly raising and spending massive sums to intervene in state election campaigns, it didn’t register with the PDC or report its receipts and expenditures. Major illegal. Details in the complaint I sent to the PDC on Friday.
Nor is it registered with the FEC. Some might wonder whether the group is protected under Citizens United. Not from Washington’s state disclosure laws. From federal disclosure only if it’s genuinely qualified to operate as a 501(c)(4), which looks doubtful.
More to come.
