ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the Federal law concerning the use of money in political campaigns that have to do with the election of members of the House and Senate and Presidents and Vice-President. Corrupt Practices Act of 1925, though does not mention Presidential and Vice-Presidential candidates specifically, but their campaigns for election are covered in the definition of the term "political committee." The general penalty for violating provisions of the act, other than that covering national bank and corporations, is $1000 fine and a year in prison or both.
