Larry Norton Talks Herman Cain Campaign Controversy with N.Y. Times, Washington Post, Chicago Tribune
November 1, 2011
“It looks like a law school exam on potential campaign finance violations,” Norton told the Washington Post. “Many of these payments would be prohibited contributions under federal election law.”
Norton also discussed the controversy with the New York Times, saying, “If they are supporting his campaign, whether directly or indirectly, they are violating the law.”
The Chicago Tribune interviewed Norton about the topic as well. He told that newspaper, “If they’re engaging in partisan political activity, that’s potentially illegal. At the very least, if the campaign received an in-kind contribution, it should have been reported.”
