Commission meetings and hearings

No open meetings or executive sessions were scheduled this week.


The Commission made public two closed cases, as follows. For more information, see the case documents in the Matter Under Review Search System.

MUR 8009

COMPLAINANTS: Campaign Legal Center; End Citizens United PAC; and Roger G. Wieand
RESPONDENTS: Protect Ohio Values PAC and Vicki J. Hoffman, in her official capacity as treasurer (POV PAC); and JD Vance for Senate Inc. and Lisa Lisker, in her official capacity as treasurer (Vance Committee)
SUBJECT: The complaint alleged that POV PAC, a hybrid political action committee, spent over $1 million on polling and voter-targeting information and provided that information for free through an “obscure website” to the Vance Committee, and that the Vance Committee used this information to make strategic decisions. Thus, the Complaint claims that POV PAC made, and the Vance Committee accepted, an in-kind contribution of information and other valuable strategic material, which neither committee disclosed. Vance was a 2022 candidate for Ohio’s U.S. Senate seat.
DISPOSITION: The Commission dismissed the allegations in light of the public nature of the communications at issue. Vice Chair Ellen L. Weintraub issued a Statement of Reasons.

MUR 8181

COMPLAINANT: Jeffrey R. Kubler
RESPONDENT: Friends of Jason Atkinson and Jason Atkinson, in his official capacity as treasurer (the Committee)
SUBJECT: The complaint alleged that the Committee failed to report a $1,500 disbursement and a $6,863.18 debt for contracted services. Atkinson was a 2020 candidate for Oregon’s 2nd Congressional District.
DISPOSITION: The Commission exercised its prosecutorial discretion and dismissed the matter.


On May 21 and 22, the Commission held a webinar for trade associations and their PACs.
