O’Malley PAC Took In Money During Session

August 4th, 2013 by WCBC Radio

The Baltimore Sun reports Maryland Governor  Martin O'Malley's federal political action committee accepted more than $73,000 in contributions during this year's General Assembly session — donations that would have been unlawful if they had been directed to a state campaign. Because the money was sent to a campaign account set up under federal law, the governor's O' Say Can You See PAC could accept the money. Nevertheless, the public might wonder whether the federal account was intended as a "runaround on the prohibition on raising funds during the session," said Jennifer Bevan-Dangel, Maryland executive director of the watchdog group Common Cause.
