Iowa Independent: FEC closes case against Iowa Christian Alliance

Excerpted from this post at Iowa Independent

The Iowa Christian Alliance (ICA) and its president, Steve Scheffler,
did not violate campaign laws by trying to influence an election, the
Federal Election Commission ruled Monday. Iowa resident Stacey Lynn
Cargill filed a complaint with the FEC alleging the group violated
campaign finance laws by allowing political activist Marlene Elwell to
use its office space and database in efforts to influence potential
Iowa voters to cast their ballots for presidential candidate Mitt
Romney. Because ICA is organized as a 501(C)4 nonprofit it is barred
from trying to directly influence elections. It can only advocate on
behalf of issues.
