DNC alleges collusion between RFK Jr. campaign and super PAC in the effort to gain access to the ballot.

On February 9, 2024, the Democratic National Committee announced that it is filing a complaint with the Federal Election Commission against Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s independent presidential campaign and the super PAC supporting him. The complaint alleges that the two are colluding to secure ballot access for Kennedy in at least 10 states. The DNC claims that the super PAC, American Values 2024, is coordinating with Kennedy’s campaign in a way that violates federal campaign finance laws. The DNC is asking the FEC to investigate and address these alleged violations. Both the super PAC and the Kennedy campaign have denied any wrongdoing and stated that they are following legal guidance. The DNC believes that the involvement of individual mega donors, such as Tim Mellon, who has previously supported Donald Trump, is a cause for concern. Mellon has donated $15 million to American Values 2024, which the super PAC stated was necessary for ballot access. The DNC is concerned that this could potentially impact the election in swing states.
