Peter Flaherty, president of the National Legal and Policy Center (NLPC), announced Thursday that the group is filing a formal Complaint with the Federal Election Commission against Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs. Also named as a Respondent is Citizen Change, an organization founded by Combs that sponsored the Vote or Die Campaign during last year’s presidential election. Flaherty was also furious Combs was given a “special award” last night from the NAACP Legal Defense Fund at its National Equal Justice Award Dinner in New York City. “Honoring Combs shows how badly the civil rights movement has lost its way,” Flaherty said. “I think of the courage and decency of Rosa Parks, and then I think of what Combs represents. The Vote or Die Campaign was little more than a way for Combs to call attention to himself. In terms of effectiveness, it was a joke.”
