Common Cause Letter to Virginia State Board of Elections Regarding DRE Voting Machines

September 8, 2017

In a letter this morning to the State Board of Elections, Common Cause emphasized that the DRE voting machines in use in precincts across the state “have multiple security flaws that should render them obsolete.” The machines’ vulnerability “has always been unacceptable, but is even more untenable given recent national security threats to our election infrastructure,” the letter asserted.

DOJ & FEC Complaints Filed Against President Trump, His Campaign & American Media Inc. for Illegal, Unreported $150K Coordinated Expenditure to Former Playboy Playmate

February 20, 2018

Today, Common Cause filed complaints with the Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Federal Election Commission (FEC) alleging reason to believe that American Media, Inc.’s August 2016 payment of $150,000 to former Playboy Playmate Karen McDougal, to buy and bury her story of an affair with Donald J. Trump, was for the purpose of influencing the 2016 election and was coordinated with Donald Trump’s attorney and agent Michael Cohen—making it an illegal corporate in-kind contribution to the 2016 Trump campaign. Additionally, the payment was never reported as an in-kind contribution received, and an expenditure made, by the campaign as required by campaign finance law.
