FEC: Letter from CLC & Democracy 21 regarding Request for Investigation of FreedomWorks
A call for the Commission to conduct a full investigation concerning the belief that Mr. Stephenson may have violated 2 U.S.C. § 441f by making more than $12 million in contributions to FreedomWorks in the names of Specialty Group Inc. and Kingston Pike Development LLC. Likewise, there is reason to believe these two companies, as well as Mr. Rose and any other individuals operating the companies, may have violated 2 U.S.C. § 441f by knowingly permitting the companies’ names to be used for the making of such contributions. Additionally, there is reason to believe that by arranging these contributions, FreedomWorks and Mr. Brandon may have violated section 441f by knowingly accepting contributions by Mr. Stephenson in the names of Specialty Group Inc. and Kingston Pike Development LLC.
