CREW Ups Pressure Over Ensign Severance Scandal « The Washington Independent

Jul 31, 2020
Not satisfied with just an internal congressional ethics investigation, the public interest group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington has called on the Justice Department to look into the claims that Sen. John Ensign (R-Nev.) paid his former mistress $25,000 when she left her job with his campaign PAC.
Under the Federal Election Campaign Act, individual contributions to PACs are capped at $5,000. “The knowing and willful failure to report contributions totaling $25,000 or more in a calendar year is a federal crime,” CREW says, “punishable by up to 5 years in jail.”
Turns out the sex was not the juiciest part of this scandal.
