  • FEC Record: Litigation

Liffrig v. FEC

February 1, 2006

On November 30, 2005, Michael G. Liffrig filed suit in the U.S. District Court of North Dakota requesting that the court relieve him from further FEC reporting requirements, set aside FEC efforts to collect civil penalties from him, order the Commission to dismiss an administrative complaint filed against his campaign and to create a procedure to dismiss complaints more quickly.

Mr. Liffrig was a candidate for Senate in North Dakota during the 2004 election cycle. Mr. Liffrig alleges in his complaint that his committee, Liffrig for Senate, has been fined by the Commission pursuant to its Administrative Fines program for failing to file reports and has had an administrative complaint filed against it.

According to the court complaint, Mr. Liffrig also alleges that the FEC should not be permitted to require the filing of further financial reports because his campaign is over and that the Court should order the administrative complaint to be dismissed because it is without merit and politically motivated.
