Pres. Obama taps FPPC Chair, Ann Ravel, for the FEC
President Obama just announced that he nominated Ann Ravel, the Chairwoman of the Fair Political Practices Commission, to the Federal Elections Commission. I have every confidence that Ann would be a terrific commissioner. She has fought hard for increased disclosure and transparency during her tenure at the FPPC. She continues to wage battles against so-called "dark money" and to push for greater civic engagement. She is smart and practical and I believe she'd make an enormously important contribution as a commissioner on the FEC.
