Trump set to REMAKE FEC, name ALL Commissioners
WExaminer by Paul Bedard --
President Trump is poised to replace all six members of the Federal Election Commission, reviving the politically divided agency and steering members, especially free-ranging Democrats, off soap boxes and back to their jobs.
While Democrat Ann Ravel recently announced her intent to resign in the coming days, she is reportedly not the only commissioner looking to move on from the agency. Other commissioners, according to insiders, are exploring leaving, retirement or taking jobs within the Trump administration.
All but Ravel, who made headlines for pushing regulation of Internet speech and conservative political sites like the Drudge Report, are serving on expired six-year terms and can be replaced at any time by Trump.
