They tried but Citizen United was unsuccessful in trying to remove a Federal Election Commission (FEC) rule that prohibits business owners from contributing to federal candidate and political committees if they receive Federal Contracts The following comes from information from the FEC website: Prohibited Contributions While most individuals are free to make political contributions, three categories of … Continue reading
The following campaign contributions came directly from American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC). Only $75 was contributed from an employee working for ALEC. ALEC is a 501 c 3 group, prohibited from such activity.
And no this is not the Heritage Action for America the lobbyist group that the Heritage Foundation created. The group Heritage Action for America was created in 2010. The FEC records I have are well over a decade old long before the Heritage action was a twinkle in the eyes of Heritage Foundation.
*** By the way how is it a group that is prohibited from being directly involved in politics can turn around and create a group to do just that. The things that should be investigated. RED FLAGS here
There are certain guidelines concerning campaign contributions, and perhaps it was a test to see what these two Republican organizations, the Heritage Foundation and American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) could get away with, especially when you consider they file as tax-exempt under 501 c 3 rules.

The United States Supreme Court should not be used to make legitimate illegal actions. Shaun McCutcheon FEC records shows he made contributions that were over the limit. Records show just in one campaign cycle, McCutcheon has donated several times over the limit involving very large sums of money. Shaun McCutcheon is suing before the United States Supreme court to remove campaign contributions. McCutcheon is Alabama’s top Republican campaign donor. Shaun McCutcheon is the CEO of Coalmont Electrical Development Company, If you know of Citizen’s United then you know how companies, like Koch Industries (Koch Brothers) have been allowed to spend their general company funds to influence elections, while they are also laying off workers. Just how much more does McCutcheon plan on taking from his employees to fulfill his political goals.
It is McCutcheon, and people like the Koch Brothers who use their money to marginalize the voice of the average American, the millions of Americans through their money.
And wasn’t McCutcheon PAC in the Red…..He’s a CEO and his PAC is in the RED and he wants the U.S. Supreme Court to remove more limits on his campaign donations. He should be begging the U.S. Supreme Court to limit his campaign contributions and roll all rules back to McCain-Feingold

Avoiding campaign violations already committed seems to be the likely reason behind Shaun McCutcheon suing the Federal Election Committee. Not only our campaign contributions are over the limit, but apparently the PAC which seems to be run and basically solely run by McCutcheon is in the Red. Someone spending more money than they have in their PAC … Continue reading

It seems John Boehner’s so-call campaigns expenditures involving Vendor … Continue reading
While we talk about keeping money out of politics, we should also do more talking about keeping money out of our courts. By FEC rules John Boehner can not take federal campaign contributions given to him by donors and turn around and give it to non federal candidates. Research shows John Boehner’s campaign funds being … Continue reading
Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission was passed in 2010, but I took a look at the FEC rules, and I looked at Canadian corporation, TransCanada and found it was making donations that broke FEC rules. I found TransCanada and its subsidiaries were making donations to non-federal candidates. I further note the FEC says specific … Continue reading
Crossreferencing Mick Mulvaney for donations on different websites it seems that even though some of his donors who gave much to him, even though some of the money was returned it still shows that the individuals are over the limit according to campaign donation laws. All these donations reflected are for Representative John Michael “Mick” … Continue reading
