Socialist Central Committee, Ltd. was established.

Anticipating the outcome of the Court's decision, a select group of socialists in Indianapolis established the SCC as a political action committee (PAC) to promote socialist political issues in January 2010. The original committee consisted of a member of the Socialist Party USA, a member of the Democratic Socialists of America, and two independent socialists.

Ignorance Attacks the Unknown

Immediately upon the Socialist Central Committee's initial public efforts in March 2010, poorly educated members of the Socialist Party USA, which included its National Secretary - Greg Pason, began to disparage the Socialist Central Committee's promotional efforts of socialist issues by inflicting the SCC with a constant barrage of false rumors, innuendo and outright lies.

Administrative Deactivation

Because of the continued disparagement by Socialist Party USA members, the committee decided to allow the SCC to be administratively deactivated in 2014. This move permitted individual committee members to pursue electioneering efforts outside the legal confines of the Federal Elections Commission.
