DOJ on Matching Emails

  • Posted by Seth Tanner on May 18, 2021 at 10:50 am

    Looking at the KAGC indictment, it looks like there will be more scrutiny about “matching” donation tactic. What do you think?

    A little-noticed line in a recent criminal filing suggests federal prosecutors consider a popular political fundraising tactic to be legally questionable.
    Why it matters: Fundraisers often boast of “5x” or other contribution matches to coax small-dollar donations. The Justice Department indicated in a court filing Monday this could amount to “material misrepresentations” if, as critics often contend, there’s no evidence the match ever occurs.
