How will Betsy DeVos respond to the fact that her defunct All Children Matter organization owes Ohio a $5.3 million fine?

The Ohio Elections Commission found that the federal and Ohio All Children Matter PACs violated Ohio campaign laws. The Commission levied fines of $5.3 million and the court upheld the fines. Former House member Steve Dyer provides a narrative of the origin and chronology of this money laundering matter.

The All Children Matter organization was disbanded and the fines were never paid.

Violation of Ohio election laws have landed some Ohio public officials before judges in the Ohio court system. Some have paid fines.

So why should DeVos be let off the hook?
