CREW: FEC: Regarding Coburn, Diaz-Balart and Musgrave Campaign Committees

On February 16, 2007, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) filed complaints with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) against the campaign committees and treasurers for Sen. Tom Coburn (R-OK), Rep. Lincoln Diaz-Balart (R-FL) and Rep. Marilyn Musgrave (R-CO). The complaints ask the FEC to investigate all three for failing to properly report contributors to their campaigns. The complaint against Sen. Coburn addresses violations committed during the 2004 election cycle, while the complaints against Rep. Diaz-Balart and Rep. Musgrave cover the 2006 election cycle. All three campaigns demonstrated a pattern of illegal conduct by failing to properly identify their contributors in the days leading up to the election.
