From Politico July 17, 2010.
“The Federal Election Commission has penalized Vice President Joe Biden’s 2008 presidential campaign $219,000 for accepting over-the-limit contributions and a discounted flight on a jet owned by a New York hedge fund. His campaign was also charged with sloppy record-keeping.”
“The fund run by Hall, a major Democratic donor who has contributed more than $180,000 to Democratic candidates and causes since 1999 (including $19,000 to Biden’s various committees), has been implicated — but not charged — by Attorney General Andrew Cuomo in a New York state pension fund kickback investigation into a joint venture that paid the Clinton Group $750 million in state funds.
In October 2008, with the probe under way, Cuomo returned a $10,000 donation from Hall.
The FEC audit also found that Biden’s campaign failed to quickly return or otherwise rectify at least $106,000 in contributions beyond the $2,300 maximum donation for individuals during the 2008 election cycle. That was based on an analysis of a sample of contributions, FEC auditors wrote, projecting that the actual total of excessive contributions could exceed $1 million.”
From the AP via Yahoo News January 4, 2013.
“President Barack Obama’s 2008 campaign has been fined $375,000 by the Federal Election Commission for reporting violations related to a set of donations received during the final days of the campaign.
The fines are among the largest ever levied on a presidential campaign by the FEC and stem from a series of missing notices for nearly 1,200 contributions totaling nearly $1.9 million.”
