History

ACT was the country's largest 527 group in 2004. It was primarily funded by Peter Lewis, George Soros and labor unions (especially the Service Employees International Union. ACT was led by Steve Rosenthal, who is the former political director for the AFL-CIO.

In 2005, in the wake of a Federal Election Commission (FEC) investigation into various violations of federal campaign finance laws during the 2004 election cycle, ACT gradually closed its doors.[2]. Its website is no longer operational.

On August 29, 2007, the FEC announced that ACT had agreed to pay a $775,000 fine for its 2004 campaign finance violations.[3]

On October 30, 2007, Ralph Nader named ACT as a co-defendant in Nader v. DNC. In the lawsuit, 2004 Reform Party presidential candidate Ralph Nader accuses the Democratic National Committee of "groundless and abusive litigation" to bankrupt Ralph Nader's campaign and force him off the ballot in 18 states.[4],[5]

America Coming Together has not reported any political activities since 2005.[6]
