Trump Has Tiny Hands PAC ordered to change its name
The Federal Elections Commission is ordering Trump Has Tiny Hands PAC to change its name or face “an audit or enforcement action.”
“Your committee’s name includes the name of a candidate; however, your committee does not appear to be an authorized committee of that candidate,” the FEC wrote in a letter to the PAC.
The letter tells the political action committee it must change its name “so that it does not include the candidate’s name” if it is not authorized by Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump.

Trump Has Tiny Hands PAC was launched last Monday by Portland, Ore., resident Henry Kraemer.
Kraemer told The Hill he decided to start the PAC when Trump denied “he has tiny baby hands.”
“When a call comes into the White House at 3 a.m., will Donald Trump’s tiny baby hands be able to lift the phone receiver? This is something Americans should know before voting,” he said last week.
One of Trump’s rivals, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), mocked the size of the real estate mogul’s hands in late February, an attack he now says he regrets.
The insult drew a memorable response from Trump during a debate earlier this month.
“He referred to my hands — if they are small, something else must be small. I guarantee you, there’s no problem,” Trump said.
The Hill has removed its comment section, as there are many other forums for readers to participate in the conversation. We invite you to join the discussion on Facebook and Twitter.
