Schumer May Have Violated Election Laws Against Hackett

Despite his exit from the US Senate race and his apparent retirement from politics, the Paul Hackett saga continues, much to the chagrin of Democrats. As the Cincinnati Enquirer reports, if Hackett's report that Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee Chairman Charles Schumer (D-NY) contacted campaign donors to Hackett and strongarmed them into stopping their contributions and switching their support to Sherrod Brown (D-Avon), then Schumer was acting in direct violation of Federal Elections Commission laws governing campaign committee chairman from harassing political donors of any persuasion. Hackett has since shrugged of Schumer's strongarm tactics, but if this supposed proof of Schumer using the FEC electronic database to gather information on Hackett contributors, Schumer could stand indictment by the FEC.

Commentary: Hackett's Senate campaign would be totally worth it if it led to an indictment or even a mere fine against the political showboat that is Sen. Charles Schumer of New York. Schumer is a raving partisan who is unbending and unwilling to compromise on any issue anyone could possibly name. He has an ego as large as the state he represents, which is evidenced by his personality conflict with NY Attorney General and current gubernatorial candidate Eliot Spitzer. Election law violations would sure deflate an ego that needs to be brought back into the atmosphere. Attempting to avoid a divisive party primary is perfectly within the confines of Schumer's job as DSCC Chairman, but strongarming donors he's never met from Ohio is entirely a different matter.
