President wants everyone but himself to pay more
Topic - Bob Biersack
This year's political campaigns are saturated with money, yet the Federal Election Commission, the watchdog on all the raising and spending, is issuing fewer warnings and completing fewer audits — and even when it does issue fines, political committees routinely don't bother to pay.
"People move, people die. Those automatically get turned over to a collections agency," he said. "But some of them are never going to get paid because the organization just dissolves"
Other times those who are subject to fines "just disappear," said Bob Biersack, a longtime top FEC official now at the Center for Responsive Politics.
