Did Missouri Marxist Senator Claire McCaskill break fundraising rules in MSNBC interview? (Video)
Marxist Democrat Missouri Senator Claire McCaskill may have violated prohibitions against soliciting campaign contributions on government property while appearing on MSNBC on Monday night, according to the Daily Caller.
“I’m asking regular folks to be my super PAC,” Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill said on MSNBC’s “Hardball with Chris Matthews” from inside the rotunda of the Russell Senate Office Building while discussing how super PACs are targeting her.
But what could be problematic for the senator is that she also reminded MSNBC’s viewers that “on ClaireMcCaskill.com, people can give 25 bucks and, if we get a lot of those, we will have our own super PAC, and that’s the kind of PAC that should be super, made up of regular people giving small amounts.”
If the Senate Ethics Committee would deem these comments a campaign activity, McCaskill could be in hot water. Rules prohibit campaign activity and the solicitation of campaign funds in government office buildings.
“Senate members and staff may not receive or solicit campaign contributions in any federal building,” according to the Senate Ethics Committee website, which also declares: “No Campaign Activity in a Federal Building.”
A Democrat breaking fundraiser rules? Am I really supposed to be shocked anymore?
