Republican Rep. Dan Crenshaw’s (TX) campaign committee received a significant fine from the Federal Election Commission after he failed to properly return hundreds of thousands of dollars in illegal campaign contributions.

“After being referred to the Office of General Counsel by the Federal Election Commission’s Reports Analysis Division, the Texas Republican was fined $42,000 for failing to give back $223,460.26 in illegal donations from the 2020 election cycle, court documents showed,” Breitbart reports.

According to Breitbart, the documents read:

The Committee received excessive and apparent prohibited contributions aggregating $223,460.26 for the 2020 primary and general elections from 125 individuals, one non-qualified political action committee, one qualified multicandidate committee, four corporations, and three LLCs.

As an authorized campaign committee, the Committee was limited to accepting $2,800 per election from individuals, $5,000 from multicandidate committees, and was prohibited from accepting any corporate contributions. The Committee, however, received $223,460.26 in excessive and apparent prohibited contributions across four disclosure reports:

The Committee does not dispute its failure to make timely refunds, but asserts that since the filing of the Referral, it has now refunded all excessive contributions.

“Ultimately, the documents showed that the commission found ‘reason to believe’ Crenshaw’s campaign committee and the treasurer Paul Kilgore violated federal law by ‘knowingly accepting excessive and prohibited corporate contributions’ totaling over $223,460.26 during the 2020 election,” the outlet added.

The news comes as Crenshaw is reportedly going for the top spot on the Homeland Security Committee.
