Repukes again going for ouster of FEC Chair (Weintraub)



I will not be silenced.

The independence of the United States Federal Election Commission will not be compromised.


This new complaint covers the same ground as one filed in 2017. That one was found to be absolutely baseless:

"Report of Investigation INV-17-04,” Federal Election Commission Office of Inspector General(December 21, 2017):


Key quote, from p. 10:

“As a government employee, Commissioner Weintraub is tasked with ensuring the public the integrity of the government and as a FEC Commissioner she is to ensure campaign finance laws are administered….”

“…The OIG investigation disclosed that Commissioners have been allowed to express their opinions and make statements in the past to reporters and at conferences, and author articles on a variety of election topics…”

“…(voting trends, women’s rights, foreign elections and political agendas), without being disciplined or found to violate 5 C.F.R. Part 2635 standards.”

My response then and now:

“It is absolutely within my official duties as a federal election official to comment publicly on any aspect of the integrity of federal elections in the United States. I will not be silenced.”
