Laws regulating political fundraising and campaigning can be exceedingly complex and restrictive. Not only are there various rules dictating the amount of money a person may donate, but also restrictions on who may pick up the dinner check or whether a candidate can accept a birthday gift.
Under such a regime, a politician’s innocent conduct can be misunderstood and investigated for wrongdoing. A simple failure to disclose a donation could be misconstrued as bribery or misappropriation of election funds. Seeking counsel that is experienced in representing federal and state politicians under investigation is always critical, but it is also a good idea for candidates and elected officials to better understand the ground rules beforehand.
