Rep. John Sarbanes, the chair of the Democracy Reform Task Force, an initiative of House Democrats, told CNN the letter represented "an opportunity for the FEC to step up and show what it's made of, to show its mettle." … "This could be its finest hour to respond this threat to American democracy," Sarbanes said…. Sarbanes and his fellow signatories have asked for the FEC to respond to the letter by October 4.
