FEC issues Advisory Opinion allowing ActBlue to split contributions

by - September 18, 2014

Advisory Opinion 2014-13 (ActBlue). The Commission unanimously approved an advisory opinion in response to a request from ActBlue. The Commission concluded that a box on ActBlue's contribution forms, which allows a contributor to enter a single contribution amount and split that amount among the recipient committees, would not result in ActBlue’s exercising direction or control over the choice of recipient candidates or political committees. The Commission concluded further that use of the box under the circumstances described in the request would not subject the fundraising activity at issue to the Commission’s joint fundraising rules.
