Pending Request from Homemaker-Candidate

mrmom.jpgThe FEC has a pending advisory opinion request regarding a self-described “homemaker” who seeks to draw a salary from the campaign. The issue seems to center on the apparent condition that the candidate, to be paid from the campaign, must have had earned income in the year prior to the campaign. “This additional safeguard will help ensure that campaign salaries are not used to enrich candidates, but instead used to compensate candidates for lost income that is forgone due to becoming a candidate.” E&J for 113.1.
