“FEC Deadlock on 501(c)(4) Fund Raising Will Not Be Reconsidered, Agency Says”

Bloomberg BNA: “The Federal Election Commission will leave intact a deadlocked legal ruling about whether a nonprofit corporation can engage in joint fund-raising activity with an FEC-regulated political action committee, according to a Jan. 22 letter from the FEC. Last year, the FEC commissioners deadlocked along party lines on an advisory opinion (AO 2012-25) requested by the American Future Fund. The Republican-leaning organization was one of a several so-called Section 501(c)(4) groups that together spent tens of millions of dollars on political ads and other activities in the 2012 campaign season.”
