Stop Foreign Donations Affecting Our Elections Act

This bill amends the Federal Election Campaign Act of 1971 to prohibit political committees from accepting any Internet credit card contribution unless:

  • the individual or entity making the contribution is required, at the time of the contribution, to disclose the credit card's verification value; and
  • the billing address associated with the card is located in the United States or, if the contribution comes from an individual U.S. citizen living outside of the United States, the individual gives the committee the U.S. mailing address he or she uses for voter registration.

In the case of an Internet credit card contribution:

  • the person receiving the contribution shall forward it to the treasurer of the political comittee within 10 days, together with the name and address of the contributor and the date of receipt; and
  • the treasurer shall keep an account of the contributor's name and address, together with the date and amount of the contribution.
