A watchdog group is urging the Federal Election Commission to investigate Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez for political donations that it claims were in violation of the law.
The Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust filed a complaint with the FEC on Tuesday, alleging that Perez transferred funds from his campaign committee to his former opponents who had dropped out of the race and supported his candidacy.
“There is no doubt that at the time Chairman Perez donated or transferred the funds, he was an agent of the DNC, the funds were related to the DNC, and the DNC’s response to the donation demonstrates Perez was acting on the DNC’s behalf,” the complaint read. “Allowing this behavior to go unpunished opens the door for a new level of corruption in party elections—offering campaign cash for support from former opponents. The Commission must immediately investigate and enforce the law.” – READ MORE[contentcards url=”http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2017/10/17/watchdog-files-complaint-over-dnc-boss-perez-donations.html” target=”_blank”]
