FEC Cites Committees for Failure to File 12-Day North Carolina Pre-Primary Report

On May 2, 2014, the Federal Election Commission cited two campaign committees for failing to file their 12-Day Pre-Primary Report required by the Federal Election Campaign Act of 1971, as amended (the Act).

As of April 29, 2014, the required disclosure report had not been received from:

  • Barfield for Congress (NC)
  • Heather Grant for US Senate (NC)

The report was due on April 24, 2014, and should have included financial activity for the period of April 1, 2014 through April 16, 2014.

The Commission notified committees of their potential filing requirements on March 31, 2014. Those committees that did not file on the due date were sent notification on April 25, 2014 that their reports had not been received and that their names would be published if they did not respond within four business days.

Some individuals and their committees have no obligation to file reports under federal campaign finance law, even though their names may appear on state ballots. If an individual raises or spends $5,000 or less, he or she is not considered a "candidate" subject to reporting under the Act.

Other political committees that support Senate and House candidates in elections, but are not authorized units of a candidate's campaign, are also required to file quarterly reports, unless they report monthly. Those committee names are not published by the FEC.

Further Commission action against non-filers and late filers is decided on a case-by-case basis. Federal law gives the FEC broad authority to initiate enforcement actions, and the FEC has implemented an Administrative Fine program with provisions for assessing monetary penalties.
