The article reports on the warning of Dianne Feinstein, Senate Rules Committee Chairwoman, to Federal Election Commission (FEC) member Hans von Spakovsky concerning the confirmation process amid allegations that he suppressed minority votes as an official at the Department of Justice (DOJ) in the U.S. Von Spakovsky may impact the regulation of the 2008 presidential and congressional campaigns because his nomination is linked to the nominations of three other FEC members.
