Bernie Sanders May Face Legal Action After Illegal Contributions
Bernie Sanders may be in trouble for illegal donations.
The Federal Election Commission may take “further legal action” after the Bernie Sanders campaign was caught accepting thousands of illegal donations, the Washington Free Beacon reports. The FEC sent a letter Thursday to the campaign pointing out over 3,000 donations that violated campaign finance law.
The violations included excessive donations and donations from foreigners.
“Although the Commission may take further legal action concerning the acceptance of [excessive or prohibited] contributions, your prompt action to refund the prohibited amount will be taken into consideration,” the FEC told Sanders’ campaign in the letter.
Sanders’ campaign must respond by the end of March or face “audit or enforcement action.”
