Federal judge dismisses FEC case against John Swallow

Local News

WASHINGTON (News4Utah) –  There were new developments in an investigation involving former Utah Attorney General John Swalllow and businessman Jeremy Johnson.

Friday, a federal judge struck down a regulation by the Federal Election Commission, dismissing the commission’s lawsuit against the two.

At issue was the FEC’s regulation that expands liability for contributions made through straw donors. A straw donor is a person who illegally uses another person’s money to make a political contribution in their own name.

The FEC claims Swallow helped Johnson make illegal donations, but the judge found no evidence of that.
