Brett Kappel was recently quoted in The New York Times regarding the issue of political campaigns using L.L.C.s to circumvent campaign finance law

Brett was referenced and quoted in a recent New York Times article, titled “Inside the Troll Army Waging Trump’s Online Campaign”, by Ken Bensinger, published on December 13, 2023, stating “Brett Kappel, a campaign finance lawyer who advises both Democrats and Republicans, described that plan as “problematic” because it implies a clear goal of circumventing public disclosure as required by the F.E.C.

“People can take advantage of those failures of the regulatory system to promote the interests of a candidate without the public ever being aware of it,” Mr. Kappel said. In that landscape, he added, “L.L.C.s have become the tool of choice” because they can be layered to obscure both the source and recipient of payments.”
