"The Electoral Commission is a "Blairite Swamp Creation" packed full of establishment "Remoaners", Leave.EU founder Arron Banks said, using a derogatory slang term for "remain" voters.
It mentioned providers the group obtained from U.S. marketing campaign strategists Goddard Gunster weren't included within the spending return when they need to have been and it inaccurately reported three loans it had obtained.
Damian Collins, chair of the Commons Digital, Culture, Media and Sport committee, said it would question question the Electoral Commission on Leave.EU's activities next week, with Banks and campaign chief Andy Wigmore appearing next month.
Arron banks, insurance tycoon who launched group and which was one of main economic supports of UKIP, has described resolution of "joke" and considers that it is "an attack on Brexit with political motivations".
The elections watchdog has referred the chief executive of Leave.EU to police on suspicion of breaking electoral law, The Times can reveal.
The commission found the overspend by Leave-EU "may well have been considerably higher", adding that the group had presented "incomplete and inaccurate" information about spending.
But the voting regulator said it found no evidence that Leave.EU received donations or paid-for services from Cambridge Analytica, a political consultancy at the centre of a storm over how Facebook data was used in political campaigns.
"The EC went big game fishing and found a few "aged" dead sardines on the beach". This meant Leave.EU was reduced to being a second-tier campaign group, legally allowed to spend just £700,000 during the referendum campaign.
- Leave.EU failed to provide the required invoice or receipt for 97 payments of over 200 pounds, cumulatively totalling 80,224 pounds. "The level of fine we have imposed has been constrained by the cap on the Commission's fines", he said.
29 may 2017, the European Commission has published key requirements for the United Kingdom in the process of withdrawal from the EU. Vote Leave, official Brexit campaign, is also being investigated for a possible breach of spending limits. "What a shambles, we are going to see them in courtroom".
- Leave.EU paid for services from the USA campaign strategy firm Goddard Gunster that should have been reported in its spending return but were not. The Commission is satisfied that the actual figure was in fact greater, given the failure to report an appropriate proportion of the cost of services provided by Goddard Gunster. "So much for the big conspiracy", Banks said. The group is also subject to a separate investigation into whether it also breached campaign finance rules by in the final days of the referendum.
