End Citizens United have never failed to be bold in their statements and activities since being established in 2015. However, the filing of a complaint against former Florida Governor Rick Scott with the Federal Election Commission alleging broken finance rules is making waves for its boldness. The traditional PAC who is providing support for more than 70 reform-seeking candidates during the 2018 Midterms who are turning their backs on special interest group funding alleges Scott is misusing funds provided for the New America Super PAC he supported.
So far, New America has raised more than $78 million in funding in an apparent bid to increase support for the work of President Donald Trump among young people. End Citizens United filed their complaint with the Federal Election Commission stating the former Governor has changed the focus of the Super PAC he chairs to now fund his own attempt to win election to the U.S. Senate.End Citizens United Communications Director Adam Bozzi has played a key role in the bid to highlight the illegal activities of Rick Scott. Bozzi recently stated the former Governor is more interested in his own election than abiding by election finance rules.
New America has already raised more than $78 million for its initial role in developing support for President Trump which the left-leaning PAC believe is now being used to pay for Scott’s campaign for the Senate. Scott’s campaign has already denied the allegations but Adam Bozzi was quick to respond by stating the Governor is listed as the Chair of New America on its official Website.The problem raised by End Citizens United is the fact Scott was the Chair of New America when he declared he was exploring the possibility of seeking election to the Senate. Since the decision of Rick Scott was made public, New America has pledged to support its founder in seeking a role in Washington D.C. Upon its founding, New America made no mention of backing candidates for office which End Citizens United claims show Scott is illegally using the group to meet his own political ends.
