“FEC Deadlocks on New Rules Against Foreign Campaign Money”

Bloomberg BNA:

Proposals to write new Federal Election Commission rules aimed at preventing foreign campaign money from influencing U.S. elections led to a deadlock between Democratic and Republican commissioners at the FEC’s first meeting in 2017.
FEC Democrats said the agency should clamp down on a possible threat of foreign campaign money, in a contentious debate set against a backdrop of wider concerns about foreign interference in the 2016 presidential campaign.
Republican commissioners responded that recent intelligence reports of Russian involvement in computer hacking and online campaign messaging had nothing to do with the campaign finance rules administered by the FEC.
