Ethics Complaint Against Missouri Leadership Committee and Steelman for US Senate

This collection includes the ethics complaint letter and exhibits (A-E) referenced in that letter. The complaint reads in part: The financial relationship between Steve Tilley's personal Missouri PAC, Friends of Tilley, and Missouri Leadership provides significant evidence of the direction or control Steve Tilley exercised over Missouri Leadership, as the Missouri House Speaker. Further, the $25,000 contribution Missouri Leadership gave to a federal Super PAC supporting Sarah Steelman, Now or Never PAC, clearly meets the FEC's established test for registration as a federal committee. Therefore, based on the financial interactions between Steve Tilley, as an agent of the Steelman Campaign, and the Missouri committee's contribution Now or Never PAC, I allege the following violations of campaign finance law: (1) Missouri Leadership Committee failed to register as a political committee with the FEC when it spent more than $1,000 to influence a federal election; (2) The Steelman Campaign, through its agent and campaign chairman, financed, directed, or controlled non-federal funds by furnishing $25,000 to Now or Never PAC through Missouri Leadership, a state committee financed by Friends of Steve Tilley.
