The Campaign Legal Center and Democracy 21 filed a complaint today with the Federal Election Commission against Rick Santorum and his campaign staff who are prohibited from directing more than $5,000 to a Super PAC. The complaint states William “Bill” J. Dore Sr., the CEO of Dore Energy (La.) sent a $1 million check to the Red, White and Blue Fund super PAC after being directed there by the campaign.

    What is the good of knowing this? Nothing will be done about it except in the media. When was the last time election fraudulent actions were taken to a grand jury, or even given a wrist slap with any meaning. Here’s a thought; all this illegal, anti-democracy activity will not stop until it is treated as a crime. Just like US war crimes by people in high places will not stop until charges are filed. Investigations costing millions of tax dollars mean nothing because there is never any result.
