Martha Coakley drew FEC inquiry

Attorney General Martha Coakley, who has come under scrutiny over the management of her political funds, also faced a potential Federal Election Commission investigation three years ago into possible violations of federal campaign finance laws.

The commission’s legal staff, after a review of a state Republican complaint, said enough evidence existed for the agency’s commissioners to authorize a limited investigation into whether Coakley and the Martha Coakley For Senate Committee violated the finance statutes in the lead-up to the 2010 special US Senate campaign.
