The fix is in.
The Federal Election Commission (FEC) is protecting Hillary Clinton…from her own name.
As Dick Morris reported:
In an effort to head off a Hillary Clinton presidency, my wife Eileen and I set up a PAC which we called “Dick Morris’ Just Say No To Hillary” PAC. No sooner had we set it up — we haven’t begun to raise money for it yet (coming soon!!) — when we received a letter from the Federal Elections Commission (FEC) saying we had to close down.
FEC regulations prohibit use of the name of a candidate the PAC is supporting in the organization’s name. The idea is to distinguish a committee for a candidate, organized under the regular election laws, and one backing and opposing issues that happen to help a specific candidate. They didn’t want voters to get confused.
So what is confusing about a PAC named “Just Say No To Hillary?” The FEC saw no distinction between a PAC using a candidate’s name to oppose her from one that used it to support her. The FEC regulation clearly applied only to PACs supporting a candidate, but the bureaucrats, eager to protect their candidate, twisted the meaning of the regulation to kill our PAC.
The very same thing happened to another PAC with Hillary’s name, and like Morris’ PAC it is very much an obvious ANTI-Hillary PAC, called STOP HILLARY!
