The Federal Election Commission is now investigating members of former Ohio Governor John Kasich’s 2016 presidential campaign, POLITICO reports.
The FEC has begun probing spending patterns of the 2016 Kasich campaign, with the commission reportedly looking into travel-related expenses.
In particular, the probe is focused on one of his former political consultants, Doug Preisse, and he or his firm, Van Meter, Ashbrook and Associates, covered certain travel expenses that the campaign should have paid.
The FEC is reportedly asking former campaign staffers for information on trips they took on behalf of Kasich or the campaign.
In addition, they are also asking for information related to New Day for America, the super PAC that supported Kasich, as well as meetings and other events were involved with during the 2016 Republican presidential primaries.
