Inside Politics: FEC expected to rule against Feinstein
Question of the Day
A draft opinion by the Federal Election Commission suggests it probably won’t go along with a request from Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s re-election campaign to allow her to replace millions of dollars in embezzled campaign contributions by going back to many of her original donors.
The FEC is likely to take a final vote on her request Thursday.
Ms. Feinstein’s campaign treasurer, Kinde Durkee, pleaded guilty last week to defrauding numerous California politicians of at least $7 million. Ms. Feinstein was the hardest hit, losing an estimated $4.5 million.
The senator had hoped that her supporters could contribute again without the original donation being counted against federal caps.
But an advisory opinion Friday said any contributions deposited in a bank account or cashed must be counted against the cap.
Integration cited as only option for Serbs
Kosovo’s prime minister says integration is the only option he will accept for his country’s aggrieved Serb population.
Speaking after meetings with Vice President Joseph R. Biden and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton last week, Hashim Thaci rejected calls for greater autonomy for Serb communities in Kosovo’s north.
He also said Friday that he would never consider a territorial swap with Serbia as a solution.
“There will be no territorial swap, there will be no autonomy, no special favor,” he said. “There will be only integration.”
Mr. Thaci said he would like to have Kosovo’s border open, but he added: “There will be no change of the border.”
Kosovo was once a province of Serbia and declared independence in 2008, a move that Belgrade and many Serbs who live in Kosovo’s north still vehemently reject.
