Alternative Disposition of Advisory Opinion Request 2013-17 (Tea Party Leadership Fund)
On November 21, 2013, the Commission considered an advisory opinion request from the Tea Party Leadership Fund (TPLF). In its request, TPLF asked the Commission to grant it exemptions from certain reporting and disclosure provisions of the Federal Election Campaign Act (the Act), including the Act’s requirements to disclose the name and addresses of certain persons who have contributed to TPLF and the requirements to disclose those persons to whom expenditures or other disbursements have been made by TPLF. The Commission considered two draft advisory opinions, but was unable to approve an opinion by the required four affirmative votes and concluded its consideration of the request without issuing an advisory opinion.
