He may have unpaid parking tickets. He may have beat up Harry Reid. He may have used a personal email server. What difference does it make?
“Inadvertent” ranks up there too.
He’s already there in some of the Trumpette’s eyes.
Lawnewz.com website created June 11, 2015. Trump campaign announced June 16, 2015. Hmmmmmm...
Any time a post title starts “It’s True” followed by “May Have” you know it’s bogus.
If you have purchased the mattress, you as the consumer can remove it.
It’s actually ridiculous that sponsoring an event that the candidate speaks at isn’t coordination anyway. (Though I know it’s the guideline provided.)
How do you get “It’s true” and “may have” into the same headline?
This activity arguably falls into the gray area its unclear how the FEC rules would apply to this political advertising strategy, Paul Ryan with the non-partisan Campaign Legal Center told LawNewz.com. Heres an example of an ad featuring Ted Cruz that appears to be shot at least partially shot at a Keep The Promise super PAC event:
“To be clear, election experts we consulted for this story agree that the FEC has not determined whether what Cruz did is legal or not. An official from the FEC told LawNewz.com that this isnt something that Commission has ever addressed. It is definitely a murky area.”
Trump gets nothing but negative press from Fox. All negstive, all the time.
>>>Its True, Ted Cruz May Have Violated Election Law With Super PAC Ads<<<
That is a misleading headline on so many levels.
Either he did or he didn’t, but you can’t say “It’s a fact! Cruz MIGHT have . . .”
Most people; however, wouldn’t get past the “IT’S TRUE!” and then see what they want to see.
Ah the culture of Luze, and the comments down thread confirm that any belittling of ethics and legal principles are just fine for their holy roller lawyer.
A decanter of Nixon doused over a bed of ignorance is what is found here.
The Party of Reagan, this foolery is nowhere near.
The Party of Romney holds these leashed Luze monkeys of Rovery while the skullduggery of Bush conveys their repugnant odor.
Carry on Luzers.
The article states Cruz “may” have coordinated but only sites the PAC may have violated by using his speech. Seems to be grasping.
“Could have”, “May have”’ Are these legal terms? Are these what Trump uses to sue people?
I find it odd that his SuperPAC was allowed to host the event where Glenn Beck offered him the fake oath.
That one seemed like it crossed the line.
The Super-PAC can’t violate the anti-coordination laws by itself.
A. " The answer is: we dont know, it could be."
Which of course also means "we dont know, it may not be."
Since complaints to the FEC take years to resolve, this is something we will not know, definitively, until the election is long over. Of course, that is assuming a complaint is ever filed. And the point of a lot of these accusations that fly in the midst of a campaign is not to resolve the issue, but merely to make the charge. So, my money is that this will never evolve into a complaint before the FEC. Or maybe it will, just as soon as Trump's legal team is done drafting that often referred to suit over ballot eligibility.
////My ass he did
Trump surrogates have little blogs all over the place and try to pitch for him. They cannot win on issues and always turn to lying and cheating. As if. If any of the hundreds of tiny blogs with stories about Cruz lying or cheating had any credibility the major papers and TV outlets would be all over it like white on rice. I don’t get why they think it will work as it won’t, oh well.
Just send iCarly another $500,000. She will fix it for him.
If the rules are murky ... you can bet lawyer Cruz exploited the rules to 'coordinate' with his super PACs. He is in 'do anything to win' mode right now ... since he is loosing badly in the voting booth.
