This is not Greenfield’s first run-in with the FEC. In March of this year, the Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust filed a complaint against Greenfield with the FEC. The complaint alleged that Greenfield illegally coordinated with the Senate Majority PAC headed by Democratic Senator Chuck Schumer of New York. IIowa Field Report covered the matter.

Greenfield also ran into legal issues in 2018 when running for congress. Greenfield’s campaign committed felony election fraud by submitting fraudulent signatures to gain ballot access.

This news comes on the heels of Greenfield and her liberal special interest allies spending months running ads against Senator Joni Ernst accusing her of similar charges. Ernst campaign spokesperson Melissa Deatsch pointed out the hypocrisy of the situation saying, “the hypocritical criticism she has leveled against Joni is an indictment against herself.”

“Between this FEC violation, coupled with her campaign getting caught with election fraud for submitting false signatures in exchange for ballot access, it’s clear Theresa Greenfield can’t be trusted,” said Deatsch

Greenfield’s similar attack against Ernst has been a core message of her campaign, despite the fact that Ernst took action immediately upon learning of the campaign donation issues, refunded the money and fired the vendor who made the mistake.
