Well, well, well…
It looks like ol’ Billionaire Bernie himself is under the FEC’s microscope for “excessive, prohibited, and impermissible” donations.
According to reports, the FEC has listed roughly 510 pages of campaign finance violations by the Bernie campaign.
Like senior political writer Dave Levinthal states, these letters of violations from the FEC are common for large presidential campaigns, but still, an over 500-page report is still pretty staggering.
Letters such as this aren't uncommon for large presidential campaigns, but this is still a lot.

The six-page letter requests more information from the campaign on 10 different items related to campaign finance regulations that appear to have been violated in the report. These include individual donations that appear to exceed contribution limits outlined by federal law, improper-looking donations from LLCs, a question about a contribution from someone with a non-U.S. mailing address, concerns about incorrect-looking totals, and other accounting problems
Following the letter, the commission listed 510 pages worth of “apparent excessive, prohibited, and impermissible contributions.”
The letter gives the campaign until the end of March to respond to the commission’s listed concerns, in order to determine whether the campaign will be audited or not. It also says that failure to comply may result in enforcement action against the campaign. [The Blaze]
It’s a wonder that Bernie can’t kick in some more money of his own for the campaign.
But that’ll probably prevent him from buying another mansion in the Hamptons.
