Complaint Filed With FEC for Text Messaging in 2012 Election

Unsolicited and anonymous text messages sent just prior to the 2012 election by an individual, his company and his PAC are the subject of a new complaint filed with the Federal Election Commission.

The messages expressed advocated the defeat of President Barack Obama. Articles about the messages from The Washington Post, USA Today, The Atlantic and The Hill, were attached to the complaint. The messages were sent as emails to phone numbers as texts, not phone-to-phone texts.
