Klink fires campaign finance director (562 words)
Although campaign aides declined to provide any details about the dismissal of Finance Director Thomas Perron, Democratic sources said it was a sign that Klink's midsummer campaign report will show that he has not raised much money since winning the April 4 state Democratic primary.
Mary Murphy Kiernan, Klink's campaign manager, said, "We don't discuss personnel matters." But citing Clinton's visit to Philadelphia, she said, "We feel very confident that we have a plan to be successful in November, and we feel we'll be able to fund it fully."
Perron, 27, a former campaign aide to Sen. Edward Kennedy, D-Mass., is highly regarded by Kennedy, his staff and officials of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee.
FEC Litigation - Court Case Abstracts - D (8630 words)
On August 28, 1980, the district court, ruling on cross-motions for summary judgment, denied the DSCC's petition and affirmed the Commission's determination and interpretation of §441a(d)(3), concluding that the dismissal of DSCC's complaint was not arbitrary, capricious, an abuse of discretion or otherwise contrary to law.
DSCC contended that, because the Auto Dealers PAC and the Mack campaign (Friends of Connie Mack) both used the services of two key campaign consultants, the independence of the PAC's expenditures was compromised, resulting in excessive contributions by the PAC.
DSCC had argued that the "totality of the circumstances" compelled an investigation to determine whether the PAC's expenditures were independent.
