FEC v. Minchew
On April 24, 1981, the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia issued a judgment in favor of the FEC in the suit FEC v. Daniel Minchew (Civil Action No. 81-174). Declaring the defendant had violated the requirements of a conciliation agreement entered into with the FEC in October 1979, the court ordered Mr. Minchew to comply with the conciliation agreement and to pay a $4,000 civil penalty resulting from the agreement. The court also required the defendant to pay the costs of the civil action and to pay interest on civil penalty from the date of the court's order. Mr. Minchew had incurred the penalty for a violation of 2 U.S.C. §432(b): he had failed to provide Senator Talmadge's 1974 reelection committee with detailed accounts of campaign contributions, which he had received on the Senator's behalf, within the required five-day period.
