Backer, who is responsible for filing the complaint, stated that the DNC must be held accountable for the illegal dealings.
A political action committee supporting President Donald Trump filed a complaint with the Federal Election Commission saying former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s donation to the Democratic Party was illegal.
Bloomberg’s $18 million donation to the Democratic National Committee is an attempt to circumvent contribution limits and violate campaign finance laws, Great America PAC said in the March 26 complaint. The FEC is reviewing the complaint and will determine later if it will investigate.
“Having failed to buy his party’s nomination, Bloomberg is doing the next best thing and buying the Democratic Party itself,” the group’s treasurer Dan Backer said Monday in a press statement.
He added: “If the Federal Election Commission allows Michael Bloomberg to get away with this illegal transfer, they’ll have sold off our democracy to a billionaire oligarch.”
