WASHINGTON – The United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida issued an Order in FEC v. Rivera (Case No. 17-22643) on Tuesday, granting the Commission’s Motion for Summary Judgment.
In 2017, the Commission brought suit against David Rivera, a former member of Congress from Florida’s 25th Congressional District, alleging that he had knowingly and willfully made contributions in the name of another in connection with the 2012 primary election campaign of another candidate in the state’s 26th Congressional District. The Commission sought a civil penalty of $456,000, which the district court granted.
