The Federal Election Commission, which considered legal action against former Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee for joking about fundraising, won't punish Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid for admitting to violating an election law.
The reason: It's not worth the effort.
The agency voted 4-0 against pursuing action after FEC lawyers wrote a four-page memo that said Reid's fundraising committee admitted to failing to comply with an election law requirement, but that it wasn't worth the time or money to prosecute.
At issue was a fundraising memo Reid's team did for 2014 Nevada lieutenant gubernatorial candidate Lucy Flores. She lost in a landslide.
