Alleged scam PAC operator indicted by the Justice Department still ran robocalls after his arrest

A man indicted by the Justice Department last month for allegedly running two fraudulent political action committees in 2016 continued to run another operation -- including promises of a Trump Christmas card for contributions of at least $35 -- using a different PAC shortly after his indictment and arrest in November.
Matthew Tunstall, a 34-year-old man from Texas, was charged along with two other men in November for allegedly operating two different PACs that used robocalls and written solicitations implying they were supporting 2016 presidential candidates -- in some cases Hillary Clinton and in others Donald Trump. The Justice Department says the men collected approximately $3.5 million from unwitting contributors, using it to enrich themselves instead of supporting the political candidate.
