FEC v. Carter Committee for a Greater America


On July 21, 1986, the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia approved a consent order between the Commission and the Jimmy Carter Committee for a Greater America, a nonconnected political committee, and the Committee's treasurer, Chip Carter. The consent order provides that defendants violated sections 434(a)(4)(A)(i) and (iii) of the election law during the 1983-84 election cycle by failing to meet the filing deadline for 1984 post-general election and year-end reports.

Within 30 days of filing the consent order, the defendants agreed to pay a $250 civil penalty to the U.S. Treasurer.

The consent order concluded a suit filed by the FEC on April 7, 1986 (Civil Action No. C86-774A).
