Concerts featuring foreign performers are fair game for political fundraisers, the Federal Elections Commission ruled today.

About a year after Sir Elton John caused a stir when he performed at a $2.5 million fundraiser for Secretary of State Hillary ClintonHillary Diane Rodham ClintonO’Malley tells Dems not to fear Trump FBI informant gathered years of evidence on Russian push for US nuclear fuel deals, including Uranium One, memos show Pelosi blasts California Republicans for supporting tax bill MORE's 2008 presidential campaign at Radio City Music Hall, the FEC ruled that the act was a "volunteer service" exempted from the "contribution" regulations in the Federal Campaign Act.

At the time of the fundraiser, the FEC did not have a quorum and could not rule on complaints filed by the anti-abortion 527 group American Right to Life Action and Judicial Watch alleging that the Clinton campaign was illegally accepting an in-kind contribution from a foreign national.

"The Commission found no reason to believe that a violation occurred and [has] closed the file," the FEC ruled.
