The Trump Team Is Pushing a False FEC Deadline to Raise Cash

submit to reddit

The Trump campaign seems to have its dates mixed up. In a recent campaign fundraiser text, the president’s son Eric Trump said they had to beat a pressing FEC deadline. The problem is, the quarterly date for presidential campaign isn’t for months.

Here’s the tweet from a reporter with The Center for Public Integrity. He obtained the text:

“Please continue to help us by Contributing NOW before 11:59 p.m. TONIGHT!” it read.

Indeed, the next FEC deadline for presidential campaign committees comes Oct. 15. It covers the period through Sept. 30. The Trump campaign filed at the last deadline, July 15.
