“Independent” WV Committee Controlled by 2 Party Leaders

Sunlight Foundation: “Mark D. Scott and John McCutcheon are both directors of Grow West Virginia, according to state documents. State campaign finance rules say that independent expenditures — the kind made by super PACs — cannot be made by a ‘political party committee or its agents.’

“Eric Lycans, the group’s lawyer, responded to questions with a written statement that any suggestion Grow West Virginia ‘violated any campaign finance laws or coordinated its communications with the Republican Party is false.’ Scott and McCutcheon and Grow West Virginia’s third director, Lecia Smith, did not respond to requests for comment.”
