Garcia For Congress - ICYMI: Lambert campaign reviewing questionable 2Q contributions 

All, 

In case you missed it, the New Hampshire Journal yesterday reported that Gary Lambert, a candidate for Congress in New Hampshire’s 2nd District, appears to have repeatedly violated campaign finance laws. According to the New Hampshire Journal article: 

“Lambert for Congress accepted a $1,000 contribution on June 30 from The Palmier Foundation, which is described by its founder, Boston investment firm head Dan Palmier, on his web site, as a ‘501(c)(3) charitable corporation created for the purpose of ‘giving back.’ The Internal Revenue Code prohibits 501(c)(3) charitable organizations from contributing to candidates for federal office.” 

The article went on to explain: 

“Also, the Lambert for Congress campaign report lists receiving a $1,000 contribution, also on June 30, from ‘Fairfield’s,’ with the same Keene address as Fairfield’s Cadillac, Buick, GMC, Inc. The firm is listed on the Secretary of State corporate division’s web site as a corporation. Federal candidates are forbidden under federal election law from accepting contributions from corporations.”
