...[F]ormer Federal Election Commissioner Hans A. von Spakovsky explained Friday in The Examiner, federal law makes it illegal for officials with a Senate campaign to coordinate with corporate or union officials: "Both the Reid campaign and Harrah's may have violated federal campaign finance law that prohibits in-kind corporate and union contributions to, and coordination with, political campaigns. Corporations and unions may spend money to run ads in support of or opposing a candidate, but they are not allowed to make direct or in-kind contributions to federal candidates. Federal criminal law also prohibits intimidation and coercion of a person exercising his or her right to vote (or not to vote)."Answer Question
If they broke the law then it absolutely deserves the attention of the Dept. of Justice. I doubt we see anything like that though.

It seems that this group of progressives is above any and all adherence to the laws of our country, they do whatever they want and somehow it is just okay, I haven't understood why this is acceptable from the very beginning of this admin; so many Unconstitutional, unethical, questionable events have been swept under the rug, it hasn't and still makes no sense...
