Quote of the Day

“The Federal Election Commission is failing to enforce the nation’s campaign finance laws.  I’m in a position to know.  I’m the vice chairwoman of the commission.

“The problem stems from three members who vote against pursuing investions into potentially significant fundraising and spending violations.  In effect, cases are being swept under the rug by the very agency charged with investigating them.”
