From the Politico
The Federal Election Commission has fined one of the last cycle’s biggest liberal political action committees $775,000 for using unregulated soft money to boost John Kerry and other Democratic candidates during the 2004 elections.
America Coming Together (ACT) raised $137 million for its get-out-the-vote effort in 2004, but the FEC found most of that cash came through contributions that violated federal limits.
The group’s big donors included George Soros, Progressive Corp. chairman Peter Lewis and the Service Employees International Union.
The settlement, which the FEC approved unanimously, is the third largest enforcement penalty in the commission’s 33-year history
It wouldn't be the first criminal related action George Soros would be involved in. He was convicted of Inside trading in France. Say what you will about the French, but they'll always have a little respect from me for actually going after this guy.
Irony of ironies is that Soros spent 12 million bucks on the anti-free speech McCain/Feingold bill in an astroturf operation. He's also a major league gun grabber (Criminals support gun control, and he's no different) and hates capitalism. Maybe he's worried about competition and that one of the people he steps on may do something about it....
