End Citizens United Fights Rick Scotts Use of a SuperPAC to Skirt Campaign Finance Laws

End Citizens United continues to fight against the landmarks Supreme Court Ruling that allowed for the creation of SuperPACs, by filing a lawsuit agaist Rick Scott. The complaint was filled with the Federal Election Commission, the organization that oversees election campaigns. The complaint alleges that Scott skirted rules that prevent SuperPACS from working with any one campaign directly.

Rick Scott was the chariman of the New Repulican PAC before he annouced his decision to run for Senate. After he annouced his canidacy the SuperPAC pledged to support him as much as possible. SuperPACS are allowed to raise as much money as they like and to donate to whomever they like, but canadiates are not allowed to work directly with a SuperPAC. The complaint alledges that if Rick Scott had not been the chairman of the SuperPAC, that New Reblicans would not have donated $78 million dollars to his campaign.

End Citizens United has documents that support there assertion that Rick Scott is more intersted in raising funds and skirting the law than he is in actually running a good campaign and being a good senator. They assert that he is funneling “soft money” into a SuperPAC and then having it donated to his campaign. This money, they alledge would normally be used for the next Presidential campaign, rather than Scott’s senatorial campaign. Scott’s relationship to the Super PAC is suspect and the Federal Election Commision will investigate this complaint and give voters the important information they deserve to know.

Regardless of the outcome of the ruling by the Federal Election Campaign, End Citizens United is continuing to fight for the little guy and do their part to overturn the ruling that led to the use of SuperPACS. This complaint is just one example of the ways that End Citizens United is working to expose corruption in campaign finance and uphold the principles on which they were founded.
