Public Citizen asks for money laundering investigation

The consumer-advocacy group Public Citizen called on the Federal Election Commission Thursday to investigate possible money laundering by a donor who gave to Republican Geoffrey Davis in Kentucky's 4th District.

The complaint came the same day The Hill reported that Quentin Nesbitt of Cincinnati, after donating the legal limit of $4,000 to Davis, gave $5,000 to Family First PAC; the PAC then made an identical contribution, on the same day, to Davis.

The contribution from Family First PAC was the only one the political action committee has made to a candidate in this election cycle. Nesbitt's contribution was the only donation the PAC has received this election cycle. -- Public Citizen asks FEC to investigate Ky. donation (The Hill.com)
