11:33 am
washington. >> we're not accomplishing what congress intended us to accomplish. >> reporter: founded in the wake of the watergate scandal, the f.e.c. is made up of three republicans, two democrats and an independent, who our analysis found voted with the democrats 92% of the time. causing a 3-3 deadlock. the f.e.c. was designed to create, regulate and enforce election law. >> unfortunately, we don't really do any of those things. >> reporter: we teamed with our nbc investigative partners in washington, d.c., to check the f.e.c.'s records and see if that was true. reviewing nearly 1900 cases dating back to 2000 we found the average investigation of a complaint took a year and two and a half months to complete or close. even cases where they took no action. 42% of all those cases went on longer than a year. compare that to california's fppc where only 12% of cases stay open longer than a year.
11:34 am
mark everson is a former irs commissioner who ran for president as a republican this campaign cycle. >> i think the members themselves understand it, and i think that the political players understand it. that's why they can take advantage of it. >> reporter: we dug further and found the problems of delays grew, starting after 2009. this graph shows the number of closed or decided cases dropping dramatically through this year. in fact, our analysis found that it now takes an average of a year and ten months to even get to a vote. and when they did vote, republicans voted as a bloc 98% of the time. democrats and that independent voted together 87% of time. >> the f.e.c. is atrocious at enforcing our campaign finance laws. >> paul ryan serves as deputy director of the non-partisan campaign legal center. >> nothing is getting done. lots of deadlock. >> reporter: the fec's calendar shows deadlock kept cases open four years or longer. one case remained open nine
11:35 am
years. >> republican commissioners are just as unwilling to enforce the law against republicans and democrats. they're trying to do all candidates and parties, outside groups, big spenders, a favor by letting them run rough shod over the law. >> do you believe there are people in power in congress who like it this way? >> i do believe there are people in power who like it. there are people who do not want change at the f.e.c. >> reporter: why? >> because they understand that, if the law is actually enforced at the f.e.c., it can have implications for how campaigns are run. >> i would strongly dispute that. >> reporter: at the regular commission meeting last thursday, republican appointees spoke to us through their chairman, matthew peterson. >> there is no signalling, so to speak, to say that you're free and clear to do whatever you want because we're just not going to enforce. the cases where we have had disagreement are based on a
11:36 am
disagreement over what the law requires and prohibits. >> reporter: even chairman peterson conceded the f.e.c. can do better. >> there have been times when i think you will all of us agree we can do a better job. >> reporter: why should mom and dad at home care about this? >> they should care about the fact that we are supposed to make sure that it's fair. >> reporter: seems like you can't get agreement on anything. >> not on very much. >> reporter: the f.e.c.'s inaction has now gotten the attention of the courts. we learned today that a federal court in washington has now ruled to the commission misinterpreted campaign finance law when it dismissed complaints against two conservative super pacs which were raising dark money. experts say this one court ruling may slow down the use of untraceable campaign cash currently flooding our political system. you can read the details on that and see our data analysis of the f.e.c.'s voting history on our
