FLASHBACK: Obama campaign fined 375k, $1.8 M unreported contributions

An article that was written in Politico in 2013 outlined the massive fine of $375,000 due to campaign finance violations.


President Barack Obama’s 2008 campaign was fined $375,000 by the Federal Election Commission for campaign reporting violations — one of the largest fees ever levied against a presidential campaign, POLITICO has learned.

The fine — laid out in detail in FEC documents that have yet to be made public — arose from an audit of the campaign, which was published in April.

The report outlined that it was $1.8 Million in unreported contributions

The major sticking point for the FEC appeared to be a series of missing 48-hour notices for nearly 1,300 contributions totaling more than $1.8 million — an issue that lawyers familiar with the commission’s work say the FEC takes seriously. The notices must be filed on contributions of $1,000 or more that are received within the 20-day window of Election Day.

As of late Donald Trump has come under attack due to the fact he may have violated a campaign finance law when paying off women he had affairs with.
