ONE YEAR AGO: Perdue Fined $30K By FEC for Prohibited or Excessive Contributions

April 20, 2020

Now in the middle of another ethical scandal after coronavirus stock trades, Perdue previously came under fire for contribution violations

ATLANTA — This week marks one year since Senator David Perdue was forced to pay a $30,000 fine after an FEC audit found that his Senate campaign received up to hundreds of thousands of dollars in excess or prohibited contributions.

Perdue is now in the middle of another ethical scandal surrounding his coronavirus stock trading, including his purchase of shares in a company making critical medical supplies while selling stock in a casino giant as its value tanked. And Perdue’s campaign was also recently notified this year that it was once again facing scrutiny over potential “excessive, prohibited, and impermissible contributions” from his special interest backers and corporate PACs.

Unsurprisingly, Perdue remains dead set against money in politics reforms and continues to enable Mitch McConnell’s efforts to block needed changes to campaign finance laws.

“Between his stock trading during the coronavirus outbreak and his FEC scrutiny over ‘prohibited’ campaign contributions, Perdue constantly puts his personal interests ahead of Georgia families,” said Alex Floyd, spokesman for the Democratic Party of Georgia.
