Va. political operative pleads guilty to coordinating campaign contributions

February 12, 2015, The Washington Post

Covington's Tony Herman is quoted regarding Tyler Harber, a Republican political operative pleaded guilty Thursday to illegally directing a political action committee to buy ads to help a congressional candidate whose campaign he managed. 

“The prudent course here is for candidates and campaign managers to take it as a signal,” said Tony Herman, a former general counsel for the Federal Election Commission who is now in private practice at Covington & Burling. “I do think it should be taken as a message to them to redouble their efforts to make sure they’re not running afoul of the coordination prohibitions in the Federal Election Campaign Act.”
