FEC: Kucinich's 2004 Campaign Owes Government $52K

February 18, 2011

It seems that lately, Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio) just can't catch a break.

First, a much publicized lawsuit involving an olive pit Kucinich bit into at a House cafeteria was the dominant story surrounding the congressman from Ohio. Now the Federal Election Commission has found that Kucinich's 2004 presidential campaign owes a five figure sum to the federal government.

The FEC determined Thursday that Kucinich's 2004 presidential campaign committee must repay $52,443 to the U.S. Treasury for using campaign money for non-qualified expenses during the 2004 Democratic primary.

According to an FEC memo, Kucinich applied for matching funds in late 2003 and his campaign received over $3 million. But the FEC determined that even after Kucinich's date of ineligibility for using matching funds -- which came in March of 2004, after he failed to receive ten percent of the vote in two consecutive primaries, he used matching funds to continue campaigning.
