FEC v. Lawson


On April 8, 1991, the U.S. District Court for the District of South Carolina, Greenville Division, granted the FEC's motion for default judgment. (Civil Action No. 6:90-2116-9.) The Commission claimed that Mark Lawson knowingly permitted his name to be used to effect a contribution made in the name of another, a violation of 2 U.S.C. §441f. The FEC alleged that, in 1982, Mr. Lawson received a $1,500 bonus from his employer, Robin's Mens Store, in order to make a $1,000 contribution two days later to the House campaign of Robin Tallon, Jr.

The court decreed that Mr. Lawson had violated §441f and ordered him to pay a $5,000 civil penalty within 10 days. The court also permanently enjoined Mr. Lawson from future violations of §441f.
