Pro-GOP group sued
"Federal election officials on Monday sued a pro-Republican political group to try to force it to comply with campaign finance limits, the first lawsuit of its kind to arise from big-money fundraising during the 2004 elections. The Federal Election Commission filed a complaint in U.S. District Court in Washington against the Club for Growth. The group spent at least $21 million in the 2003-04 election cycle. The FEC contends the group spent enough in federal races to require it to file with the commission as a political committee and to abide by contribution and spending limits."
