LAMONT To File FORMAL FEC COMPLAINT Re: Lieberman's Slush Fund
Lamont campaign to file formal FEC complaint regarding Lieberman's alleged 'slush fund'

RAW STORY
Published: Monday October 23, 2006


The Ned Lamont campaign is planning to file a formal complaint with the Federal Election Commission over Connectictut Senator Joe Lieberman's alleged "slush fund," according to a press release obtained by RAW STORY.

"After President Richard Nixon abused campaign finance law through his Committee to Reelect the President (CREEP), laws were passed to force candidates to disclose how they spend campaign funds," the press release states. "But over the weekend, it became clear Senator Joe Lieberman may be ignoring those laws, as the Senators FEC reports uncovered $387,000 "petty cash" slush fund that could be called the Committee to Reelect Lieberman (CREEL)."

"During the 14 days around the August 8th primary, Liebermans campaign spent over $387,000 on un-itemized, un-identified, and un-disclosed disbursements," the press release continues. "By contrast, Ned Lamonts campaign spent just $500 on petty cash in the entire reporting period."

The Lamont campaign asks the following questions: "What was this spent on? Who was it spent on? And why werent the expenses itemized, as the FEC requires?"

1. Damn Good Questions
That's a hell of a lot of cash to disburse in a week, w/ no record of where it went.

3. Nice find! Hardly surprising, since HolyJoe has turned to the dark side.
387 THOUSAND in unrecorded "petty cash" disbursments
might be just the thing to get some of the Dem Voters
to wake up and pull their heads out of their asses.

6. Thank You, Mr. Lamont!
Thank you for quietly and competently demonstrating what Leadership is all about!

The hell with Clinton, Obama and McCain.

10. Well Hannity considers him a republican
last week's radio they were talking about what states the Dems could pick up a senator (the same day he told Dems to stay home and not vote) - he said Lieberman is a sure win in CT and a benefit to the R side.
