FEC Tells Bernie 2016 to Account for $10M

The Federal Election Commission (FEC) sent a letter to Bernie 2016 telling it to account for a discrepancy of over $10 million in donations. The letter is dated 30 March and cites the July 2015 Quarterly Report submitted by Bernie Sanders’ principal campaign committee.

The $10M occurs during the first months of fundraising (1 April 2015 – 30 June 2015). Susan Jackson, Treasurer of Bernie 2016, must explain the discrepancy by 4 May 2016.

Here is a snippet of the FEC letter:

FEC 30 Mar

The discrepancy appears to coordinate with an earlier post to this blog (See: Bernie Gets $10 Million in Mystery Donations from Washington D.C.) in which over $10M in un-itemized receipts is reported on this Schedule A-P; all are dated 30 June 2015 and marked as originating from Washington, D.C.

The FEC discrepancy noted in the 30 March letter ($10,465,912) matches the Schedule A-P referenced above and in this blog’s February post.

While the figures match, the FEC is concerned about a discrepancy between the amount reported on the committee’s Detailed Summary and its Schedule A-P. The Summary does not include that ten million in donations.

This is the latest in a series of campaign finance issues arising from the Bernie Sanders campaign committee.
