Following Exposé, Pro-Clinton PAC Refunds $200G in Banned Contributions

Campaign-MoneyA pro-Hillary Clinton Super PAC has returned $200,000 in contributions following an investigation published Wednesday from The Hill that revealed the donor company held federal contracts

A spokesperson for the company, Boston-based Suffolk Construction, said that the contract was for a project that was completed four years ago. Suffolk made two $100,000 donations in the past year to Priorities USA, a pro-Clinton PAC, which confirmed to The Hill that the money was refunded.

According to a 70-year-old campaign finance law, companies that make money from the government cannot give political contributions, though the law is rarely enforced and frequently flouted by companies contributing to both parties. (Suffolk had also contributed $10,000 to Right to Rise, a pro-Jeb Bush super-PAC.)
