Report: Martha McSally Fined Again For Election Law Violations

REPORT: Martha McSally Fined Again For Election Law Violations

This year, McSally has been forced to pay nearly $30,000 in fines for breaking campaign finance laws in 2014

PHOENIX — A new report outlines that unelected U.S. Sen. Martha McSally in March 2019 had to pay a previously-unreported $5,000 fine for breaking campaign finance rules and improperly disclosing more than $50,000 in campaign contributions during the 2014 election cycle.

The revelation follows an Associated Press report from last month on McSally being forced to pay a $23,000 fine for taking more than $300,000 in illegal campaign contributions during that same election.

In this year alone, McSally has been forced to pay nearly $30,000 in fines for violating election laws and to return at least $120,000 in excessive campaign contributions. And McSally’s recent track record of breaking campaign finance laws is nothing new: McSally has been breaking rules since her first congressional election in 2012.

Why doesn’t McSally just follow the law? Well, as the Arizona Republic Editorial wrote in 2015: “[T]his many failures begins to look intentional.”

“Martha McSally has been dishonest with Arizonans since she first ran for Congress in 2012, including by hiding donors and taking hundreds of thousands of dollars in illegal campaign contributions,” said Brad Bainum, Arizona Democratic Party spokesperson. “Arizonans deserve better from their representatives than McSally’s repeated campaign finance lawbreaking.”
