Yes, Senator Corzine, Laws Apply To You Too
Yes, Senator Corzine, the rules apply to you too. For a man that co-sponsored McCain-Feingold campaign finance reform, you’d think he’d want to set an example by living up to the spirit, as well as, the letter of the law. Corzine is very passionate about limiting campaign donations from everyone, except those from Jon Corzine and family.
Corzine wants to split hairs because FEC rules severely limit the amount of money he can raise and personally contribute to New Jersey Democrats and state political action committees. If you’ll remember, it was Corzine’s money that caused Democrat Party bosses to abandon Acting Governor Codey in favor of Jon Corzine as their nominee for Governor.
According to federal campaign laws, individuals can contribute a maximum of $2,100 to a candidate, $5,000 to a political action committee, and $10,000 to a state, district and local party committee.
Under New Jersey law, individuals can contribute a maximum of $2,600 to a candidate, $7,200 to a political committee, $7,200 to a municipal political party committee, $25,000 to a legislative leadership committee, $25,000 to a state political party committee and $37,000 to a county political party committee.
Since Corzine began his campaign for “public service” he has maxed out his donations to New Jersey Democrat candidates and groups. Senator Corzine will still be able to spend boat loads of his money on this election and we assume his children and mother will be able to continue their generous denotations to various Democrat organizations and candidates.
