FEC: Critical letter to Vern Buchanan was an “error”

in Uncategorized by

A letter sent to Congressman Vern Buchanan about alleged mistakes in his campaign finance was sent in error and has been withdrawn, a spokeswoman for the Federal Election Commission said. The original letter charged that Buchanan had not properly documented the return of more $80,000 in illegal straw donations. Buchanan was never implicated in the scheme but agreed to return the donations.
