Donald F. McGahn II

Don McGahn advises and represents elected officials, candidates, national state parties, political consultants, and others on political law issues.

Don served as a commissioner and chairman of the Federal Election Commission (FEC). During his time at the FEC, Don led what has been called a "revolution" in campaign finance. He rewrote virtually all of the FEC's procedures for audits, enforcement matters, and advisory opinions, which provide for an unprecedented amount of due process. Several opinions authored by Don represent the current state of law regarding issues such as coordination, issue advocacy, campaign travel, political party programs, and emerging technologies. [1]
