House Investigators Probe FEC Dismissal of Union Corruption Case

Congressional investigators are probing a decision by the Federal Elections Commission to drop a case against a major teachers’ union that allegedly violated federal law by forcing union members to donate to its political action committee.

Claire Waites, an eighth grade science teacher and member of the National Education Association, testified at the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee in February that she was told by union leadership that a donation to the NEA’s “Children’s Fund” PAC was “non-negotiable.”

Compulsory political contributions by workers to a union’s PAC is illegal. Waites filed a complaint with the FEC in 2009, but was told later that year that the Commission would be dropping the case due to the relatively small amount of money involved (her contribution to the Children’s Fund was $100).
