Complaint: Official Campaign Arm Of House Dems Unfairly Influenced Colorado Primary With Illegal Contributions

DC: A non-partisan ethics watchdog filed a complaint Tuesday against the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) for allegedly providing illegal in-kind contributions to Jason Crow, a Democrat running for office in Colorado’s Sixth Congressional District.

The Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust (FACT) filed the complaint with the Federal Election Commission after The Intercept published audio in April of House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer pressuring Crow’s primary challenger, Levi Tillemann, to drop out of the race to clear the way for Crow, the establishment’s preferred candidate for the June 26 primary.

“In the present case, it is clear the DCCC sought to influence the primary election and gave in-kind contributions to Crow to support his primary race,” FACT’s complaint reads. “The DCCC requested other candidates drop out of the primary race and only provided valuable resources to Crow to assist his primary campaign.”

Tillemann provided The Intercept with a December 2016 recording of Hoyer urging him to drop out of the race, saying the DCCC, the official campaign arm of House Democrats, had made a behind closed doors decision that Crow would be the nominee for the general election. read more

  1. I’m shocked that the democrat party would collude to influence an election.
    Seriously, I think we are just know beginning to see how slimy and immoral our electoral process has become. It is sickening to realize how distorted our founding fathers vision for people willing to do public service has been perverted.
