Women Vote Smart and its treasurer, Amy Kremer, owe $20,000 in past-due fines to the Federal Election Commission for failing to submit financial reports in 2020. The FEC disclosed the latest penalty, a $7,400 fine for missing a third quarter filing, on Friday. 

Through a nonprofit named Women for America First, Kremer and her daughter Kylie organized the January 6 rally that segued into the riot at the Capitol. The House select committee investigating the attack has requested any communication involving Kremer from the National Archives.

Kremer did not respond to a request for comment from Forbes.

Founded in May 2016 as Women Vote Trump, the PAC changed its title the following month, after the FEC pointed that using a candidate’s name violated campaign-finance rules. 

Kremer became the PAC’s treasurer in February 2019. Prior to her taking the role, Women Vote Smart appears to have filed all of its FEC reports on time. Since she assumed responsibility for the PAC’s finances, it has failed to submit six reports, according to the FEC.

I took an unusual route to get here. In a past life, I worked as a travel and food writer, which is how I got the assignment in 2016 to cover the grand opening of the Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C., just a couple miles from my home. When Trump won the election and refused to divest his business, I stayed on the story, starting a newsletter called 1100 Pennsylvania (named after the hotel’s address) and contributed to Vanity Fair, Politico and NBC News. I’m still interested in Trump, but I’ve broadened my focus to follow the money connected to other politicians as well—both Republicans and Democrats.
