Here’s a story you won’t see in the mainstream media. Especially in an election year when Republicans are expected to win.

Public university violated federal election laws in promoting rally for Dem congressman, Bill Clinton, says lawyer

A public university in New York violated federal election laws by sending out an email promoting a campaign rally for Democratic congressional incumbent Rep. Tim Bishop (N.Y.) and former-President Bill Clinton, an elections lawyer told Campus Reform on Monday.

The email, obtained by Campus Reform, went out to the entire student body urging them to sign up for the Wednesday event using their school-issued email addresses. It was “[p]aid for by the New York Democratic Committee,” according to its signature, and also appears to violate the school’s long-standing policy against using resources to aid political candidates or causes, according to the school’s College Republican chapter.

Cleta Mitchell, a political law attorney with Foley & Lardner LLP, examined the email on Monday and recommended the College Republicans group file a complaint with the Federal Elections Commission against both the university and Bishop’s campaign.

“They are in violation of this section of the law because they are not supposed to show favoritism under the federal campaign finance laws,” Mitchell said.

Furthermore Mitchell said Bishop’s campaign could also be culpable for receiving an illegal contribution from the university.

Meanwhile, College Republicans at Stony Brook also expressed outrage at the email, which they say represents just the latest episode of discrimination in which Democratic candidates receive support, while Republican activities are denied the same services, or suppressed.

“This is maddening,” SUNY Stony Brook President Laura Doukas told Campus Reform on Monday.

“Universities have no place promoting campaign events for an incumbent through official communications channels while ignoring the challenger,” added David Laska, Director of Communications for the New York Republican State Committee.
