The political Action committee for the End Citizens recently filed a complaint to the Federal Election Commission alleging that Rick Scot is unlawfully using super PAC to finance his senate campaign. The committee suggests that the aspirant is doing this action to get around the federal restrictions placed on straight contributions to candidate’s campaigns. Rick Scot had set aside $78 million for his campaign treasury. PAC’s has a rule it uses of raising as much money as it can and then spending it as it needs to but only work directly in the campaign process. Thus, it accused Rick Scott of not following the anti-coordination law with the PAC. Scott was the group chairmen before announcing that he was running for a seat in Senate, PAC had pledged to support him get the seat.
Rick Scott vigorously denied the allegations, but End Citizen United counteracted the denial by presenting a document that supported the charge and that Rick was having worked with PAC a few months ago. To prove the point, End Citizens showed the website that indicated that Scott was the chairman of the organization in January. Rick proved that he is not a candidate who trusts in campaigns finance reform; thus it is vital for End Citizens United have victory over him this year at the election box. Even though Scott has denied any allegation, End Citizens persists to gather proof to the contrary. For instance, PAC learned that Rick and the New Republican were working with Jenny Rucker who is a fundraiser. ECU also discovered that Rick’s campaign was recorded at the same address with that of New Republican in February when the charge was filed.
