They claim that he had illegally used super PAC when supporting his Senate campaigns. According to PAC, a candidate performs these actions should get federal limits that are placed directly to candidates contributions. At the time of the case, Rick Scott had already raised $78 million to be used as campaign coffers.
It is accordance to super PAC purview that a candidate can raise as much money as possible and then spend the much they want, but the money should not be directly working with processes of campaigns. End Citizens United, therefore, made accusations to Scott of violating the anti-coordination law when he was with New Republican PAC. Rick Scott was once the chairman of the group before he had decided to announce his running plans for Senate seat. PAC, therefore, pledged to give him support to win the election to the United States Senate.
The Director of Communications in End Citizens United Bozii insisted that Mr. Scott is having the interest to achieve his political ambitions than follow the law. He tried to figure out how he will be able to bypass the laws of elections. He decided to funnel soft money to his former organization super PAC which is used to support the president. Adam Bozzi also said that the existence of super PAC was to help Scott win by sidestepping financial campaign laws by paying his campaign required bills and then disclosure the laws.
Rick Scott denied the accusations vigorously. End Citizens tried to counter his denial by providing a document which was supporting Rick Scott charges of working with organization lately. For example, the End citizens pointed out PAC’s website was still listing Mr. Scott as the chairman of the organization.
