Sen. Rand Paul’s 2016 Presidential Campaign Committee Fined by FEC

The Federal Election Commission just fined Senator Rand Paul’s 2016 presidential campaign committee $21,000 for “improperly handling contributions.”

Fox News reports:

The penalty follows a 2016 complaint made by J. Russell Lloyd, the former chairman of the Louisville Democratic Party, according to a letter the FEC recently sent that was addressed to Lloyd, the Courier Journal reported Thursday. Lloyd died in February 2020.

The FEC said the committee didn’t refund or redesignate contributions of $165,749 within 60 days of former President Donald Trump winning the 2016 Republican nomination.

The FEC action isn’t insignificant, said Adav Noti, senior director and chief of staff for the nonpartisan Washington-based Campaign Legal Center.

“In the big picture, the FEC is legendary for not really penalizing anybody, so any penalty of significance from the FEC is noteworthy,” he told the Courier Journal. “And $21,000 — although it’s not a bank-breaker for a presidential campaign, it’s not nothing, either.”

So far, Se. Rand Paul hasn;t commented on the FEC fine.

Sounds like political persecution to me. The Democrat Crime Organization is acting like the criminal thugs they are and using their Deep State Operatives to strike out at their opposition. They have so weaponized the Government and most of it’s agencies against the people I no longer trust the government.

We don’t have to go after them for them to attack us. They have been quietly setting up U.N. Troop bases around the country. They are going to try and ram the U.N. Small arms treaty through the Senate soon. Guess who is going to be coming to search for and collect citizens arms.

They are already setting up in Utah. The U.N. Small Arms Treaty is an agreement among member nations to remove all small arms from the hands of citizens of member nations that sign on to the treaty. You can’t enslave a people till you disarm them. Members of the Marxist Democrat Crime Cartel consider themselves Citizens of the World. They are only patriotic American citizens when it serves a purpose. Biden recently requested U.N. assistance in fighting systematic racism in America.

They’re going to get hit by lightning alright, but it will be during the Tribulation when this earth is going to be under serious weather activities, displacement of tectonic plates, and many disruptions in the earth’s atmosphere. Men will quake with fear during the Great Tribulation and its very near.

The only good thing is, U.N. Troops are often the worst disciplined and trained troops in the World. Every time they are sent in to get control of a situation the U.N. has to beg the U.S. to rescue them. Remember the incident in Somalia??? Most of the U.N. Troops are only good for Meals on Wheels.

Why on earth would the Louisville Democrat party of hypocrites, feel the need to take this action? What possible difference could it make to them, and why did they go after this? Oh — silly me. I forgot the demented Democrats are going after every little insignificant thing they can possibly dig up, to continue to show their hate for our good President Trump and those who advocate for him! And their queen Hillary did lose to President Trump that campaign, so it’s part of their normal petulant, foot-stomping temper tantrums any time they don’t have their way! What a bunch of whiny, hypocritical children they are. To quote my buddy, Bugs Bunny, “What a bunch of maroons!” 🙁

$165,000 is not insignificant.

She was graceful in her defeat.
Joe won both elections.

Hillary lost, Trump won the electoral
college. As for Biden well let’s just say
the Dominion voting machines helped
him win. Trump’s legitimate votes were thrown out by the USPS & biden was “given” illegitimate votes that were
not valid votes, no water marks.
BTW Hillary didn’t bow out gracefully, she’s still crying about it 4 1/2 yrs. later.
It’s the bitch dems who throw tantrums
like little kids when they don’t get their
way. They said if Trump loses, he won’t
leave we will have to force him out.
Though Trump won, he did leave
voluntarily. Dems lie through theIr
teeth every day, as long as their lips
are moving. They think that are getting
away with their injustice but God will
bring judgement on them for their evil
deeds done to America & her citizens.

In the last days good will be classified as evil and evil as good…everything is twisted and upside down until God comes to judge this earth and mankind for all the sins and corruption. Isaiah 5:20 There is a growing love of evil, while good is denounced. Isaiah 13:9 See, The Day of the Lord is coming, a cruel day with wrath and fierce anger to make the land desolate and destroy sinners within it. 11, I will punish the world for its evil, and the wicked for their sins. People need to know the absolute truth of the times and prepare themselves.

A Senator referring someone for criminal a investigation is meaningless, That is an executive Branch function. Trump had 4 years to investigate Fauci. The fact that Fauci is not behind bars is proof that Trump was a weak leader.

Isaiah 5:21 Woe to those who are wise in their own sight, and clever in their own sight. They take bribes to let the wicked go free, and they punish the innocent. Genesis 6:5. And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually…..Recognize the Times.
