Bankman-Fried family is currently embroiled in a $100 million financial scandal, which revolves around the misuse of commercial assets for the purpose of making political contributions.

The family, which includes the creator of the now-closed FTX exchange, has been accused of illicitly utilizing FTX clients’ assets to exert influence over the 2022 election.

The Wall Street Journal’s emails disclosed that SBF’s father, Joe Bankman, engaged in illicit campaign fundraising endeavors. SBF’s brother Gabriel and mother Barbara Fried gave funds to various political organizations and initiatives, whereas Gabriel directed donations towards efforts aimed at preventing pandemics.

David Mason, a former chairman of the Federal Election Commission, proposed that Joe Bankman might bear direct legal obligations in accordance with campaign funding regulations.

A spokesperson for Joe Bankman refuted all accusations of campaign finance offenses. Ryan Salame, a previous co-CEO of FTX Digital Markets, admitted admission to criminal charges and received a prison term of 7.5 years. SBF is presently incarcerated.
