Leadership PAC associated with Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene violated campaign finance rules, FEC
The PAC received a contribution that exceeded the permitted $5,000 limit from an individual and made a contribution to Ohio Republican congressional candidate J.R. Majewski's primary election campaign more than a month after the election, according to the FEC.
The Federal Election Commission has informed a leadership PAC aligned with GOP Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene that it violated campaign finance rules.
In a letter dated Wednesday to the Save America Stop Socialism PAC, the agency wrote that the organization had several financial discrepancies and excessive or prohibited contributions in its quarterly filing from July, The Hill reported.
The political action committee, or PAC, received a contribution that exceeded the $5,000 limit from an individual and made a contribution to Ohio Republican congressional candidate J.R. Majewski's primary election campaign more than a month after the election.
A total of $5,000 had been contributed by the PAC to Majewski's primary campaign on June 17, despite the GOP primary that he won having occurred May 3.
The FEC requested that the PAC address the financial discrepancies it filed, refund the excessive contribution from the individual, and seek a refund from the Majewski campaign. The federal agency gave the PAC until Nov. 23 to respond to the letter.
