FEC flags Perdue’s campaign again for “excessive, prohibited and impermissible contributions”
Atlanta — The Federal Election Commission (FEC) recently notified Senator David Perdue’s campaign that it is once again facing scrutiny over potential “excessive, prohibited, and impermissible contributions” from his special interest backers and corporate PACs. Perdue’s latest FEC flag focuses on numerous checks from out-of-state PACs and special interest lobbying groups backing his campaign.
The Perdue campaign’s apparent willingness to skirt federal election law should come as no surprise. After his 2014 campaign, Perdue was forced to pay a $30,000 fine after an FEC audit found that his campaign received hundreds of thousands of dollars in contributions that either exceeded campaign contribution limits or came from prohibited entities.
With this latest FEC inquiry, it’s time for Perdue to come clean to Georgia voters about his campaign’s apparent disregard for basic federal elections law.
“Georgians deserve a Senator who follows the rules and is accountable to them, and this new scrutiny is a reminder that Senator Perdue was fined for blatantly violating campaign finance laws after an audit found he took hundreds of thousands of dollars in impermissible donations in his last campaign,” said Alex Floyd, spokesman for the Democratic Party of Georgia.
