The Bush-Cheney campaign violated federal election law by accepting a list of 592 personal contacts, marked confidential, from Americans for Tax Reform (ATR) and its leader Grover Norquist, a Federal Election Commission report found last month. But FEC lawyers asserted that because of the list's "limited size and scope" the agency should take no further action and close the file.
"It was a bad decision of the FEC refusing to take its responsibility seriously," says Larry Noble, executive director of the nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics. "This case is ripe for someone to challenge it."
