Prohibited Contributions - Federal Government Contractors
Individuals under contract to the Federal government may not make contributions to influence Federal elections. For example, if you are under contract as a consultant to a Federal agency, you may not contribute to Federal candidates or political committees. Or, if you are the sole proprietor of a business that has a contract with the Federal government, you may not make contributions from either your personal funds or your business account. But, if you are merely employed by a company (or partnership) with Federal government contracts, you are permitted to make contributions from your personal funds.
