America First Legal Foundation v. FEC (24-517)


On February 25, 2024, America First Legal Foundation (plaintiff) filed suit in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia alleging the FEC failed to act on its administrative complaint. The plaintiff seeks injunctive and declaratory relief under the Federal Election Campaign Act (the Act).


According to the court complaint, plaintiff filed an administrative complaint with the FEC on October 23, 2023, alleging violations of the Act resulting from the failure of Biden for President, Biden Victory Fund, DNC Services Corp/Democratic National Committee and Biden Action Fund to report contributions and coordinated communications. Specifically, the complaint alleges that the respondents solicited and received a campaign contribution of substantial value when the “Letter of 51” from former intelligence officials was produced and disseminated. Plaintiff alleges this resulted in violations of the Act including failing to disclose contributions and failing to disclose coordinated communications.

The plaintiff alleges the FEC has failed to act on its complaint within the 120-day statutory period after which suit may be filed. The suit asks the court to declare that inaction contrary to law, and to order the FEC to conform with that declaration within 30 days.
