The gun-banning "Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence" just can't win for losing. Fresh off their failures at the polls in 2004, the Brady Bunch is now under fire for their actions in the 2000 campaign.
This week, the Federal Election Commission (FEC) announced that the anti-gun outfit and its Political Action Committee (PAC) had been forced to pay $12,000 in fines for illegal corporate campaign contributions they made five years ago to the coffers of several endorsed candidates.
The illicit money streams originated from the Brady Voter Education Fund, and covered ads and endorsements for several Democratic candidates in the 2000 election cycle.
The American Conservative Union filed the original complaint with the FEC in 2001, in the aftermath of the tumultuous 2000 elections.
