  • FEC Record: Advisory opinions

AOR 2016-20: Mlinarchik

December 5, 2016

On December 1, 2016, the Commission considered an Advisory Opinion Request (AOR) from Christoph Mlinarchik, the sole-member of a limited liability company (LLC). The LLC has not elected to be treated as a corporation for federal income tax purposes and is negotiating a contract with the federal government. Given these facts, Mr. Mlinarchik asked whether he would be able to make contributions to federal political committees from his personal funds. The Commission was unable to render an opinion by the required four affirmative votes and concluded its consideration of the request.
