Pirro's website breaks federal law
It's not a well-appreciated bit of the law, but federal law prohibits candidates from soliciting campaign funds after they've withdrawn from a race (except to retire campaign debt.)
Until Wednesday, Jeanine Pirro was running for US Senate against Hillary Clinton. Now, she's running for state attorney general of New York. Unfortunately, her website continued to solicit funds for her federal campaign account until Thursday.
From the Albany Times-Union:
At issue was Pirro's Web site, http://www.jeaninepirro.com. As of 2 p.m., it was still accepting cash for her Senate run, said Green. His campaign provided an automatic e-mail generated by the site sent to a donor -- a Democrat testing the site -- to confirm his 1:42 p.m. contribution.
