A complaint was recently filed with the Federal Election Commission by End Citizen United. The complaint alleges Rick Scott is illegally supporting his campaign for Senate with a super PAC. He has currently raised $78 million. There is no limit to the money raised or spent by a super PAC but working directly with a campaign is illegal.
Rick Scott was previously the Chairman for the New Republican PAC. The PAC has pledged to assist in his election to the United States Senate. Adam Bozzi of End Citizens United stated Rick Scott is less interested in the law than his political ambitions and is bypassing the law to use the super PAC to place soft money into his account. He also said the super PAC is aiding Rick Scott in avoiding the law regarding campaign finance and paying the bills for his campaign.

These accusations were denied by Rick Scott’s campaign. Documentation was provided by End Citizens United supporting their charges. Rick Scott was also listed as the Chairman of the New Republican super PAC on their website in January. End Citizens United was created due to the 2010 decision of the Supreme Court. The PAC began encouraging finance reform for campaigns on March 1st of 2105. They want Big Money eliminated from the political system. They are working with candidates to overturn the ruling so donations will no longer be unlimited and undisclosed.
End Citizens United is collecting evidence against Rick Scott. They have revealed he is working with the New Republican and the Jenny Rucker fundraiser. The same address used for the New Republican was used for Rick Scott’s campaign. The New Republican also financed a poll for Rick Scott. A report by the Tampa Bay times stated in February Rick Scott was raising money for the New Republican. In March, a report was issued by the Washington Post that Rick Scott was preparing to host a dinner for the New Republican donors. A poll was run questioning if Rick Scott should be in the Senate race. This is what led to End Citizens United making a complaint against Rick Scott.
