Federal Election Commission Won’t Extend Socialist Workers Party Exemption from Reporting Campaign Contributions

On April 20, the Federal Election Commission deadlocked 3-3 on whether to extend the Socialist Workers Party’s exemption from having to report its campaign contributions and also its expenditures. Because there is a tie, the motion to extend the exemption fails. The three Republican Commissioners voted in favor of the SWP. Thanks to Rick Hasen for this news.
