Breaking News: Ann Ravel and Lee Goodman Nominated to Federal Election Commission


The White House today nominated two people to serve six-year terms on the Federal Election Commission.

The nominees are Lee E. Goodman, an attorney at law firm LeClairRyan, and Ann Ravel, chairwoman of the California Fair Political Practices Commission.

Goodman will be floated to replace Republican Commissioner Don McGahn, sources close to the nomination tell the Center for Public Integrity, while Ravel will replace Democrat Cynthia Bauerly, who resigned earlier this year.

It will be interesting to see if the FEC Republican Commissioners’ resistance to enforcing campaign finance law vigorously changes with the departure of Don McGahn.

I could not think of a stronger candidate for the FEC than Ann Ravel, but it is a huge loss for the FPPC.
