Bush Accused of Violating Spending Limits in 2004 Election

The Washington Post reports:

The three Democrats on the Federal Election Commission revealed yesterday that they strongly believe President Bush exceeded legal spending limits during the 2004 presidential contest and that his campaign owes the government $40 million.

Their concerns spilled out during a vote to approve an audit of the Bush campaign’s finances, which is conducted to make sure the campaign adhered to spending rules after accepting $74.6 million in public money for the 2004 general election.

Not very surprisingly, the Republicans on the panel claim, “There was no violation of the law.”
