(Times Union) Marc for US, the congressman’s federal campaign committee, returned the funds to Molinaro for Dutchess on June 8, according to Molinaro’s July filing with the FEC. The FEC complaint, filed in April by End Citizens United, a group committed to “getting big money out of politics” and to “elect (ing) Democratic candidates,” according to its website, claimed the money was originally transferred from Molinaro for Dutchess in violation of federal campaign finance law.

End Citizens United spokesperson Bawadden Sayed claimed the return of $2,000 to the local committee amounted to Molinaro “shamefully admit(ting) wrongdoing in his own quarterly report.”
