Despite the repercussions of the Weiner Committee’s investigation, the Federal Election Commission eventually reached a conciliation agreement with the Weiner Committee. In December 1999, Tzvi Odzer gave the Weiner Committee $1,000. That amount was the maximum allowed contribution an individual could make to a federal candidate’s campaign. Then, in May and June of 2000, Tzvi Odzer wrote three separate checks to the Weiner Committee. These checks were signed “Tzvi Odzer,” but bore the name of one of his children in the “for” line.
