End Citizens United Case: Rick Scott In Trouble

End Citizens United is a political committee action, and it filed a case with FEC recently. In the complaint, the organization was alleging that Scott used PAC illegally for supporting his senate campaign. According to PAC, a candidate can use these actions so that to get around the limits of the federal that are placed on contributions to campaigns of a candidate directly. At that time, Rick Scott had already raised $78 million towards his campaigns.

A candidate can raise more money possible and then spend as much as he wishes but the funds should not work for his campaign process directly. It is what made End Citizens United accuse Rick Scott because he violated the law. Besides, Rick Scott was working as the chairman of PAC before he announced running the Senate seat where the organization pledged to assist him to get elected in the position.

Adam Bozzi, the communication director, working at End Citizens United stated that Scott has interest in political ambitions than the law, so he figured out on the way he can bypass the election law by getting soft money into PAC that was supposed to be in use for the United States president. Bozzi also insisted that PAC was in existence so that it could help Rick Scott in sidestepping the campaign finance regulations, settle his campaign bills and evade revelation laws.

When Rick Scott was talking, he denied all the accusations, but Adam Bozii countered his denial by presenting some documents that supported that charge. It claimed that Mr. Scott worked with PAC in the recent months. The End Citizens United indicated that Scott was still listed on PAC’s website as the chairman of the organization in January.
