The Energy and the Environment Legal Institute promotes free-market environmentalism through strategic litigation. David Schnare, General Counsel of E&E Legal, discusses several ongoing actions, including E & E Legals’ request that the IRS and FEC investigate the Sierra Club for illegal fundraising and improper electioneering activities.
E & E Legal requested that the FEC investigate the Sierra Club for potential federal and state financial disclosure violations. The Sierra Club recently bought $1 million in ads aimed at smearing and defeating Iowa Republican State Senator Joni Ernst in her bid for the U.S. Senate.
The FEC complaint argues that the Sierra Club has taken money donated to it for environmental programs, but then spend that money on political activities, which E & E Legal believes violates campaign finance laws.
