FEC Cites Four Committees for Failure to File 12-Day Pre-Primary Financial Reports
WASHINGTON -- The Federal Election Commission (FEC) cited four campaign committees 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 Tennessee’s primary election being held on August 5, 2010.
As of August 3, 2010, the required disclosure reports had not been received from:
The reports were due on July 24, 2010, and should have included financial activity for the period July 1, 2010, through July 16, 2010. If sent by certified or registered mail, the reports should have been postmarked by July 21, 2010.
The FEC notified committees involved in the Tennessee primary election of their potential filing requirements on June 30, 2010. Those committees that did not file on the due date were sent notification on July 26, 2010 that their reports had not been received and that their names would be published if they did not respond within four business days.
