Setting Their Sights On Soros

Thursday, January 27, 2005

Could billionaire anti-gunner and anti-Bush zealot George Soros be running into legal troubles? Could be.

An article in the January 19, edition of the Washington Times revealed that a complaint was recently filed with the Federal Election Commission (FEC), alleging that Soros violated numerous provisions of the Federal Election Campaign Act during his failed, high-dollar crusade to defeat President Bush.

The National Legal and Policy Center (NLPC) logged the complaint against Mr. Soros, alleging that he failed to report and disclose several campaign expenditures during his extended, anti-Bush publicity tour, as is required by federal law. Also named in the complaint was Fenton Communications, which reportedly assisted with the campaign, and two nonprofit organizations that hosted Soros speeches: the World Affairs Council of Philadelphia and the Metropolitan Club of Columbus, Ohio.

Mr. Soros spent much of the fall touring the country, touting the "virtues" of Senator John Kerry (D-Mass.) to any who would listen. Unfortunately for him, it looks as if the people paying him the most attention were the watchdogs at NLPC.
