Time Quotes Trevor Potter on Bernie Sanders' Alaska Super PAC for Millennials

March 21, 2016, Time Magazine

Caplin & Drysdale's Trevor Potter spoke with Time magazine concerning America's Youth PAC, the Anchorage-based Super PAC made up almost entirely of former Bernie Sanders 2016 campaign staffers.  Its leaders broke off from the Sanders campaign, but are using the PAC to give their support to the Vermont senator.  For the full article, please visit Time's website.

Excerpt taken from the article.

Limited federal laws, and a dysfunctional Federal Election Commission, make it difficult to prosecute questionable cases. Under current election law "it is possible for people to leave a campaign and go basically do the campaign's work through a super PAC that is not regulated the same way under campaign finance law and accept unlimited contributions," said Trevor Potter, a former FEC commissioner.
