Idled FEC recalling workers to fix computing crash

by - October 10, 2013

A computer server crash is forcing the government shutdown-idled Federal Election Commission to recall "a few staff people" to address the issue with major campaign finance filing deadlines looming.  Key sections of the FEC's website, such as those containing financial disclosures by political candidates, committees and parties, have been offline since Monday. Downloadable databases are also malfunctioning.   It "could take a couple of days" before the underlying problems are fixed, FEC Chairwoman Ellen Weintraub told the Center for Public Integrity, adding that she hopes "to have the website back up soon."
