Louisiana Businessman Pleads Guilty to Making False Statements to the Federal Election Commission

“Mr. Cenac, in an effort to increase his political contributions, structured his financial transactions and created false documents,” said U.S. Attorney Boente.  “This prosecution should serve as a warning to people who attempt to hide their identity and make contributions in excess of legal limits.” According to the plea documents, Cenac obtained cashier’s checks using his personal and corporate funds in names of individuals other than himself, including people he knew professionally, personally, or through family relations.  Cenac neither sought nor obtained the permission of the individuals he listed as remitters on the cashier’s checks.  He then submitted the checks as campaign contributions to the campaigns of two U.S. Senate candidates, causing the campaigns to submit materially false information regarding the source and the amount of the contributions to the FEC.
