Conservative Group Files FEC Complaint Against Bernie
 
The conservative group Coolidge Reagan Foundation has filed an FEC complaint against Bernie Sanders' campaign because he employs an illegal immigrant.

According to The Washington Free Beacon:

The Bernie Sanders presidential campaign is violating federal election law by employing foreign nationals in advisory campaign positions, according to a newly filed complaint to the Federal Election Commission obtained exclusively by the Free Beacon.

The complaint points to the employment of three individuals, including Maria Belén Sisa, an illegal immigrant from Argentina who is in the United States under the protections of DACA and has been named deputy national press secretary for Bernie 2020. Sisa, who collected a salary from the Bernie 2016 campaign and also made financial contributions to it, recently made headlines when she questioned whether American Jews, including her own boss Sanders, were loyal to the United States.

Both the work for the campaign and contributions are "direct and serious violations" of federal election law, the complaint argues.

The complaint, filed on Thursday afternoon by the Coolidge Reagan Foundation, argues that Sisa's current position on the campaign, due to its strategic nature, is a clear violation of this prohibition.

The complaint also calls into question the 2016 campaign which employed Sisa and two other non-compliant individuals.
