The Latest on the Debates

LWV has, filed a, suit challenging the Federal Election Commission's ruling that we could not accept corporate, or- foundation funds for the debates project. The League contends that this was a legitimate service to the American electorate and not a political campaign activity. The suit will also try to show the, loss inflicted on the League's fundraising capability by the FEC decision.

As of Jan. 15, the cost of the Debates was Q315,179 with some bills still outstanding. $224, 060 had been received in contributions. A shortfall of $70,000 is predicted, which will be made up from LWVEF reserves.
