“A Washington, D.C.-based watchdog group is alleging that a Belleville law firm used its secretaries and office staff as ‘straw men’ to funnel illegally high campaign donations to” attorney C.J. Baricevic (D). “In a complaint filed Tuesday with the Federal Election Commission, the Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust (FACT) lays out an unusual contribution pattern by six low-level employees of the firm Keefe, Keefe & Unsell, P.C. The group claims that pattern is an attempt to circumvent federal campaign contribution limits.” (St. Louis Post-Dispatch)
