No moves being made at the FEC

President Obama will have the opportunity to significantly skew the FEC when, at the end of this month, five of the six FEC commissioners’ terms will expire, but there is speculation that these posts will not be easily filled.

At this time, there are no nominations before the Senate for either the three commissioners whose terms have already expired or the two whose terms end at the end of the month, much to the chagrin of campaign finance reform advocates.  The FEC has still yet to write policies to enforce the rulings from last spring’s Citizens United decision, which could significantly impact the re-election campaigns and fundraising efforts of congressional leadership and the president himself.
