    A Democratic super PAC has filed a complaint with the Federal Election Commission, charging that the Trump campaign broke federal election law by using his corporation to advance his presidential campaign, NBC News reports.

    The complaint was filed after Meredith McIver took the blame for cribbing parts of Michelle Obama's 2008 convention speech for Melania Trump's speech at the Republican National Convention Monday night.

    The complaint, filed by the Democratic Coalition Against Trump super PAC, says McIver's involvement in the speechwriting is a violation of campaign finance law because she has received no compensation from the campaign but is an employee of the Trump Organization. The campaign is expected to list all in-kind contributions of goods and services in campaign finance reports.

    It was not immediately clear if the Trump Organization or campaign responded.
