Federal Elections Commission (FEC) press release - FEC TAKES FINAL ACTION ON SIX CASES - LegiStorm
Baldwin County Education Association (BCEA); Saadia Hunter, BCEA President; Alabama Education Association (AEA); National Education Association (NEA); and National Education Association Fund for Children and Public Education (NEA Fund)
National Right to Work Legal Defense and Education Foundation, Inc.; Claire Waites; and Jeanne Fox
The complaint alleged that BCEA, a local labor union, made a prohibited contribution to the NEA Fund, the NEA’s separate segregated fund. The complaint further alleged that BCEA and Hunter made, and AEA and the NEA Fund accepted, contributions in the name of two of the complainants, Waites and Fox. Additional allegations included that Hunter, BCEA, AEA or the NEA Fund failed to inform Waites and Fox of the political purposes of the NEA Fund at the time of solicitation and that Hunter, BCEA or the NEA Fund failed to inform Waites and Fox of their right to refuse to contribute without any reprisal.
The Commission used its prosecutorial discretion to dismiss the matter in light of the small dollar amount at issue and the inconsistencies in the factual record of this matter.

You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo
