NRCC Accused of Using Twitter to Test Bounds of Election Law

Main Page

Overview of this Controversy


Date Originated: November of 2014
Categories: NRCC & Super PAC
The National Republican Congressional Committee and outside Republican groups set up fake Twitter accounts to share internal polling data throughout the 2014 midterm elections. The fake Twitter accounts would share what would look like gibberish to most people, but was in fact internal polling data meant to help the Super PAC's determine where to spend their dollars. This collusion may violate election laws preventing coordination between Super PAC's and the campaigns they are supporting.
