(Worthy News) - A federal judge has blown the whistle on a secret Federal Election Commission scheme to punish some Republican groups and their donors, the latest sign of an anti-GOP bias at the elections watchdog.

In a newly released decision, Trump-appointed District Court Judge Trevor N. McFadden shined a spotlight on the FEC’s general counsel who recommended action against four Republican groups but dismissal of similar charges against supporters of a Democratic group, “Black Men Vote.”

In the case, the Washington-based Campaign Legal Center charged that the FEC wrongly voted to drop charges against three of the Republican super PACS accused of taking “straw donations” through corporations. [ Source: Washington Times (Read More...) ]

  1. Ecclesiastes 5:8
    8 If you see the extortion of the poor,
    or the perversion of justice and fairness in the government,
    do not be astonished by the matter.
    For the high official is watched by a higher official,
    and there are higher ones over them!
