Democrats have filed a complaint with the FEC — Federal Elections Commission — against Mitt Romney, accusing Mr. Romney and his election campaign office of funneling “soft money” into his presidential bid. According to the report;
Strict limits exist under the Federal Election Campaign Act on contributions an individual can make to a federal election campaign, compared with the unlimited funds that can be sent to a PAC by individuals or corporations.
“Credible evidence suggests laws may have been broken by Romney using ‘soft money’ corporate, unlimited donations to fund (his) presidential campaign,” the party said.
Romney has been an aggressive fundraiser in recent years through his national Free and Strong America PAC, based in Lexington, Massachusetts, and state PACs nominally located in Alabama, New Hampshire, Iowa, Michigan, and South Carolina.
The complaint was filed on Friday April 29th.
