News Conference Today

Today I will be holding a news conference to discuss the laws related to “Citizen United” entities and independent expenditures made to influence elections  and also announcing a random audit of these entities.

Our news conference will be held at our office in the Executive Office Tower, 7th floor conference room.

The US Supreme Court ruled that unions, corporations and LLC’s could spend unlimited amounts on independent expenditures to influence elections in January of 2010. (Citizens United v. Federal Elections Commission)  Since then, numerous “Citizen United” entities have spent money advocating for and against various candidates or ballot measures.

In an effort to improve transparency and disclosure, we will discuss filing requirements and outline penalties for non-compliance.

The media is invited to attend.
