A government ethics watchdog Tuesday filed a complaint with the Federal Elections Commission after audio from a secretly recorded conversation implied the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee tipped the scales in favor of their preferred candidate, and may have violated campaign finance laws in the process.

The secret recording of a conversation between House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer and Levi Tillemann, a Democrat candidate for the 6th Congressional District in Colorado, was made last December. The audio became public after the Intercept published it in April with Tillemann's consent after some names and private information were edited out.

Hoyer makes plain to Tillemann in the recording that some higher-ups in the Democratic party preferred Army veteran and corporate lawyer Jason Crow be the party's nominee in the district.

The Intercept's story on the audio included a quote from David Aarestad, who by that time had dropped out of the same race.

"But, they [the DCCC] made polling data available to Crow that they did not make available to me," Aarestad was quoted as saying. "They made other resources available to Crow that they did not make available to me, such as email lists for fundraising purposes."

FACT wrote in its complaint that the polling data and email lists were in-kind contributions that appear not to have been reported, but should have been.

"Candidate reporting requirements exist to prevent corruption and ensure transparency in our elections, which is something the DCCC showed a blatant disregard for in this case," Kendra Arnold, FACT's executive director, said in a statement.

"What's equally disturbing is that this type of Machiavellian behavior has been endorsed by House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi," Arnold added. 

Requests for comment from the DCCC and the Jason Crow campaign were not returned. Hoyer's office declined to comment on the record.

You can forget it, Mr. Chuck _ Curtis, as they're Democrats and rules applied to others, don't apply to them.

Shenanigans were used by Clinton and the DNC to throw Bernie under bus, too.

hopefully the state of Colorado will handle this if there's anything to handle.

what's this got to do with the national democratic committee?   

the DCCC can decide which candidates to support and which not to, you do know that don't you?   


it's not even clear from the complaint that there was any violation of any elections laws.


from the complaint itself -

Two of the resources the DCCC reportedly gave to Crow were
polling information and mailing lists, which are in-kind donations. Moreover, the value of
all the in-kind donations cannot exceed $5,000, which would likely have been violated by
these types of in-kind contributions.
15 Whether or not the contributions exceeded the
permissible amount is unknown
, however, since neither the DCCC nor Crow reported it
as required by federal law.

There is no crime of collusion--but maybe you can enlighten the board on the criminal activity you refer to, ms/mr davik62?
