Welcome

When I first started working in the PAC world 30 years ago, I was overwhelmed.  The rules and reporting, while not really difficult, are confusing.  Thus, if the PAC is one of your many competing priorities, I know it is often relegated to the back burner and then stress ensues near the filing deadline.

At Sexton PAC Consulting, our approach is to provide you with accurate, timely reporting and unparalleled customer service.  My unique background as a PAC and Grassroots manager for a corporation, along with my experience as a PAC consultant, allows me to be a better resource to my clients.  I am able to share best practices, provide research, and offer guidance to your PAC staff.

We work to understand the needs of our clients and then strive to meet those needs so that the PAC is one less task you need to worry about.  Furthermore, our team is proficient in a variety of PAC management software, so that you are not required to change vendors.  If you are looking for software, we will help you evaluate your needs and find the software that is appropriate for your organization.

Please visit our Services page to see what we can offer your organization. I look forward to hearing from you.

A Case for SSF Hybrid PACs

Stop This Insanity, Inc. Employee Leadership Fund, et al. v. FEC is a case that sought to allow an SSF to have a separate account that is used for independent expenditures in the same way that non-connected committees are now allowed.  While this does not seem like a hard choice for the court to decide, given the recent court decisions, the FEC argues that it would allow for the connected organization to pay the administrative expenses of the non-contribution account, thus making unlimited and undisclosed organization contributions.  Furthermore, if allowed, it would call into question the coordination of expenditures being made on a candidate’s behalf.  The District Court denied the plaintiff’s request and granted...

Supreme Court Overturns Individual Aggregate Limits

On April 2, the Supreme Court ruled in favor of an appeal by Shaun McCutcheon of  a US District Court ruling that upheld the FEC aggregate limits.  This action overturned the ruling and eliminated the biennial aggregate limits on an individual donor’s contributions.  Previously, in addition to meeting the per candidate, per election limit of $2,600 (2013-2014), an individual was also required to meet a three-pronged biennial aggregate limit.  The two-year limit was $123,200 for the 2013-2014 cycle, with the direct candidate contribution portion capped at $48,600.  While this decision does not change the per candidate, per election limit of $2,600, the overall cap has been eliminated and individuals are able to give the...
