And this is a bad thing because...??

As Primaries Begin, the FEC Will Shut Down

“The federal agency in charge of policing the torrent of political spending during the upcoming presidential primaries will, for all practical purposes, shut its doors on New Year's Eve.”

Unfortunately, that’s a bit of hyperbole because:

“…the 375 auditors, lawyers and investigators at the FEC will continue to process work already before them…”

375?? That’s over one staffer for every two elected federal positions. That’s a lot of people just to make sure that I’m not trying to give Congressman Van Hollen’s next opponent's campaign $2,301.
