Ruling of the Federal Elections Commission

On July 5, 2011, presidential candidate Abdul K. Hassan asked the United States Federal Elections Commission to issue a ruling as to his rights and obligations under the various federal election laws including the Federal Election Campaign Act ("FECA"). After an open meeting on September 1, 2011, during which the issues were intensely deliberated, the FEC unanimously voted (6-0) the next day. The FEC ruled that I can run for President and can solicit and receive contributions. The FEC also ruled that I am covered by FECA and am required to comply with the record-keeping, contribution and expenditure requirements of the FECA but that I am not eligible to receive matching funds.
