FEC Commissioners Peterson and Hunter on Partisanship and Enforcement at the FEC

Following up on the latest comments from Commissioner Goodman, FEC Vice Chair Peterson and Commissioner Hunter (the two other Republican-appointees to the Commission) send along the following statement:

“After the recent dustup regarding alleged partisan considerations in the FEC’s enforcement process, we would like to clarify that, in our nearly seven years as commissioners, party affiliation has never governed how we determine the timing or disposition of enforcement matters. Carrying out our responsibilities is already complex and difficult enough without dragging politics into the mix.”
