The British-born singer crooned last week for the presidential candidate, thus helping her raise $2.5 million, but now right-wing Judicial Watch has filed a formal FEC complaint against Clinton.
John’s contribution, they say, breaks federal election laws. A foreign national, read the regulations, cannot “make a contribution or donation of money or other thing of valueâ€¦in connection with a Federal, State or local election.”
Said Judicial Watch’s president, Tom Fitton:
Recent news reports suggest that Hillary Clinton and Hillary Clinton for President have accepted an in-kind contribution from a foreign national, Sir Elton John, in contravention of federal electon laws. On behalf of Judicial Watch and its supporters, I hereby request that the FEC investigate this matter.
It looks as if Elton John, a foreign national, gave a valuable, in-kind contribution to Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign, which is prohibited by law. The FEC and other authorities need to take appropriate action and investigate Hillary Clinton, her campaign, and Elton John.
Clinton’s campaign had no comment on this right wing criticism, of course.
