Election Connection: 37 Weeks: The FEC

Standard

I first became more aware of the FEC, the Federal Election Commission when its Chair, Ellen Weintraub tweeted corrections to President Trump’s pronouncements several months ago. I have since followed her on Twitter, and trust in her unbiased opinions about fair election and campaign finance rules.

The FEC is an independent regulatory agency that enforces campaign finance law and it is a good organization to follow and learn what it’s all about. It’s important to know what the regulations are in regards to campaigns and finance so that when we see discrepencies or anomolies, we can speak out. And we all should. We all should also be able to give the correct information in answer to questions as well as simply know where to search for the answers we do not know yet.

While both Ms. Weintraub and Caroline C. Hunter both serve on the commission, Ms. Weintraub was replaced by Ms. Hunter as Chair in January.
