[COMMENTARY] January 6th Insurrectionist Amy Kremer Officially Fined By FEC
[Writer’s disclosure: Amy Kremer has blocked me from her Twitter account]
Amy Kremer, the founder of Women for America First, has let her crush on Donald Trump blind her to the truth about the 2020 election, and now it’s not only coming back to haunt her, but it’s also bringing legal ramifications.
Kremer helped planned a national bus tour for her group which ended at the “Save America” rally that preceded the attack on the Capitol on January 6th. Now Kremer’s failure to file quarterly reporting for her Women Vote Smart PAC has gotten her in Trump-like trouble with the Federal Election Commission (FEC).
In a scoop for Rantt Media, journalist Nancy Levine reveals that Kremer has been assessed a fine in the amount of $6,541 for non-filing, according to a letter sent by the FEC to Kremer on February 18, 2021. Payment of the fine, which was due within 30 days of Kremer receiving the letter, has not been made.
The FEC issued five warning letters for “Notice of Failure to File” to Kremer in her capacity as treasurer of the Women Vote Smart PAC. The first warning letter from the Commission was sent to Kremer in May last year, as Rantt Media first discovered.
Kremer not only never acknowledge the notices from the FEC, she also continued to raise money and plan events as recently as two weeks ago at Trump’s Doral property.
SCOOP by me: Amy Kremer has been fined by the FEC for non-filing for her PAC.
She hasn't paid, and case may be moved to the US Department of Treasury for enforcement, collection.

Levine details how Kremer, a former Tea Party leader, co-founded the Women Vote Trump PAC in 2016 with Ann Stone, an ex-wife of Roger Stone. Founded with a goal of raising $30 million, by 2017, the Women Vote Trump PAC was nearly $20,000 in debt and had only raised $26,813. And Kremer’s PAC “got in trouble with the Federal Election Commission for the unauthorized use of a candidate’s name”.
In January, Sen. @RonWyden, chair of the Senate Finance Committee, told me he will "keep pressing the IRS to investigate" tax-exempt groups involved in Jan 6 events. Amy Kremer's tax-exempt Women for America First was permit-holder for Jan 6 pre-riot rally https://t.co/YbRU0itFPQ

It isn’t as if Kremer didn’t have plenty of warning. Aside from all of the letters from the FEC, she definitely ignored advice from people who told her months ago that the agency was coming for her.
Yeah, that’s a photo of a fighter, just look at that virility & strength. 🙄 Your problem is you’ve never had a man treat you well & you think abuse is love. He’s already forgotten about you and he won’t help you with @FEC, #AmyKriminal, you dumb traitorous cooze #MAGAIsOver https://t.co/NCXXTXHNhq

Levine writes: “Kremer made news again this week for comments that were condemned as racist, following the conviction of former police officer Derek Chauvin who was found guilty on all counts for the murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis. Kremer tweeted, suggesting that residents of Minneapolis are still ‘going to riot regardless’ — because they have a ‘free ticket for a shopping spree.’”
Don’t use pronouns, coward. Say it. Own it. Let your racist flag fly.
