FEC Cites Committees for Failure to File 12-Day Pre-Primary Financial Reports
WASHINGTON -- The Federal Election Commission (FEC) cited four campaign committees today for failing to file the 12-Day Pre-Primary Election Report required by the Federal Election Campaign Act of 1971, as revised (the Act), for the Maryland, Massachusetts and New York primary elections that are being held on September 14, 2010.
As of September 10, 2010, the required disclosure report had not been received from:
The reports were due on September 2, 2010, and should have included financial activity for the period July 1, 2010, through August 25, 2010. If sent by certified or registered mail, the reports should have been postmarked by August 30, 2010.
The FEC notified committees involved in the September 14 primary elections of their potential filing requirements on August 10, 2010. Those committees that did not file on the due date were sent notification on September 3, 2010 that their reports had not been received and that their names would be published if they did not respond within four business days.
