FEC v. Speelman


On January 28, 1991, the U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland issued a consent order and judgment in which the FEC and Harry Speelman agreed that defendant Speelman exceeded the contribution limits of the Federal Election Campaign Act by making a total of $11,470 in contributions to American Citizens for Political Action during 1987. These contributions exceeded the $5,000 per year limit under 2 U.S.C. §441a(a)(1)(C). The court permanently enjoined Mr. Speelman from future similar violations of the Act. Because of extenuating circumstances that came to the agency's attention after it had filed this suit, the Commission agreed to drop its request for a civil penalty and court costs. (Civil Action No. 90-2190.)
