If the FEC acted as Weintraub demands, it could vastly, unilaterally expand its jurisdiction and infringe on the jurisdiction of other federal agencies, Congress, and the states. . . .
Now, Weintraub threatens to make it nearly impossible for the FEC to remain impartial on . . . . As : “We are a law enforcement agency at the end of the day, and we must be strictly impartial and neutral in how we approach cases, not just in actuality but in the appearance of how we conduct ourselves.”The RNLA will follow Commissioner Weintraub's actions and highlight future examples of partisanship here and in our weekly Daily Caller column.
