Advocates of stricter campaign finance law enforcement fear a Senate Republican push to restore a quorum on the Federal Election Commission could thwart their ability to pursue alleged violations in court.

The Senate Rules and Administration Committee is expected to vote Thursday to advance Texas election lawyer James “Trey” Trainor to fill a GOP vacancy on the panel.

“For the FEC to do its job to protect the voices of all voters, not just special interests, the agency and the nomination process must be reformed,” Trevor Potter, an election lawyer and former Republican FEC commissioner who’s president of the Campaign Legal Center, said in a statement in March opposing Trainor’s confirmation.

Trevor Potter is also a Member of the Political Law Group at Caplin & Drysdale, Chartered.
