2 GOP groups violated PAC-to-PAC transfer ban in February

The Birmingham News reports: The Senate Republican Caucus political action committee and another GOP group broke a new law prohibiting transfers among PACs just two months after lawmakers approved the ban, according to campaign finance records.

But the state senators in charge of the PAC said it was a simple mistake and they returned the money after they caught the error.

The Republican State Leadership Committee Political Action Committee, based in Washington, D.C., gave the Senate Republican Caucus PAC $100,000 on Feb. 25, according to records filed Friday with the Alabama Secretary of State. The donation came roughly two months after lawmakers with much fanfare passed a ban on political action committees transfers.

The Senate Republicans returned the $100,000 on Sept. 16. -- Read the whole story --> Alabama GOP PAC violated new ban on transfers | al.com
