FEC document reveals Trump hired actors to attend 2016 campaign launch event. Should the FEC have dismissed these allegations?

  • Yes, these allegations should be dismissed.

    Who cares if Donald Trump hired actors to attend his 2016 campaign launch event? Trump certainly did not have to pay anyone to attend his rallies, because those were always overflowing with supporters. The Federal Elections Commission should dismiss these silly allegations. Paying people to attend campaign events is a non issue.

  • I don't think these allegations against Trump should have been so easily dismissed.

    If it is against FEC rules to hire actors for campaign events, and Trump did so, then I think the case should have been pursued. Apparently, it was proven that actors were hired for the event, but that Trump was unaware of this. Someone, if not Trump, should be held accountable.

  • It doesn't matter.

    It doesn't matter that Trump hired actors to attend his campaign launch event, because Clinton hired people to disrupt Trump's campaign events. At the end of the day, politics is dirty. People don't expect politicians to be honest anymore. Trump won the election so it's all water under the bridge.

  • No, I don`t think so.

    The FEC concluded that no significant violation had occurred because the campaign later disclosed a payment to a contractor (Gotham Government Relations) that subcontracted with Extra Mile." But in dismissing the allegation, the FEC concluded that there were, in fact, paid actors attending the event, which Trump's camp claims to have not been aware of. Ah, yes, the classic accidental hiring of paid actors. But most importantly, how many of those background actors have gone on to be college students on The Affair or a part of the crowd being addressed by the Young Pope? And where's the document about that?
