So, I’m looking at Ann Tornberg’s late campaign finance report.
In the year end report – from 2 weeks before the election through January 1, she is claiming she received two – as in 2 – itemized donations totaling $800.
BUT… She claims she received $15,348.11 In unitemized donations during the same period?
Er, yeah. Sorry, but I’m going to call Bull$h|t on that one. I’m pretty sure that defies the laws of fundraising. She claims to have received over 150 donations around $100 in the last two weeks… At the same time she shuffles 15k off to the Democratic Party?
Sorry, but that doesn’t happen. At all.
If we are going to bother to enforce campaign finance reporting laws at all, it’s worthy of an investigation and a spot audit by the Secretary of State.
Otherwise, why do we bother to report, versus eliminating the reporting requirement.
