FEC v. Clark
On April 23, 1987, the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida issued a consent order in FEC v. John R. Clark, Jr. (Civil Action No. 86-1841-CIV-T-17B). In the order, the FEC and Mr. Clark agreed that:
- Mr. Clark had entered into a conciliation agreement with the FEC in which he admitted violating section 441f of the election law by knowingly permitting his name to be used for a contribution made in the name of another person. In the conciliation agreement, Mr. Clark also agreed to pay a $250 civil penalty by January 25, 1985.
- Mr. Clark had violated the conciliation agreement by failing to pay the civil penalty on time.
- Mr. Clark paid the civil penalty only after the Commission had notified him that the agency had filed suit against him for failure to pay the penalty.
Finally, Mr. Clark assured the court that, in the future, he would fully comply with the election law.
