Feds Again Call Out McSally For Illegal Contributions
Feds Again Call Out Martha McSally For Illegal Campaign Contributions
Just like last year, Martha McSally is again facing Federal Election Commission scrutiny for apparently accepting excessive campaign contributions
PHOENIX — It’s a story as old as time: Martha McSally is once again under federal scrutiny for potential campaign finance law violations.
As reported by KNXV-TV, the Federal Election Commission (FEC) last week sent two letters to McSally’s Senate campaign, flagging more than $346,000 in receipts as including “Apparent Excessive, Prohibited, and Impermissible Contributions” that the FEC says are either misattributed or in excess of legal limits.
If that sounds familiar, here’s why:
In July 2019, McSally was fined $23,000 for similar violations, following FEC findings that she accepted $319,000 in illegal, excessive contributions during her 2014 campaign.
And in early 2019, McSally’s campaign was forced to return $120,000 in illegal, excessive contributions that she pulled in during the 2018 election.
“Arizonans are already voting and have a right to know if Martha McSally is once again funding her campaign with illegal contributions — as these FEC letters suggest,” said Brad Bainum, Arizona Democratic Party spokesperson.
