She’s on the GOP primary ballot as a candidate for congress from the 6th district, but as far as the Federal Election Commission knows, she’s still a candidate for U.S. Senate.
Hundreds of Little for Congress
lawn highway signs showed up on Route 36 on Friday night. “Paid for by Anna C. Little for Congress Inc.”
The “paid for” disclosure sparked my curiosity and prompted a visit to the FEC website. Little’s website is paid for by “Friend of Anna Little.” It seemed odd that Anna C. Little for Congress was paying for signs.
The letter from the FEC says:
If your committee again becomes active in federal elections, it will be required to re-register with the Commission in accordance with the Federal Election Campaign Act and applicable Regulations. Your committee will be treated as a new entity by the Commission and should register as a new committee on FEC FORM 1, pursuant to 2 U.S.C. §§ 432(g) and 433(a).
But, a thorough search showed no reinstatement of the campaign committee. Little has no congressional campaign committee or congressional account registered with the FEC.
How could this be? I must be missing something, I thought to myself. A visit to Little’s website confirmed my memory that “Friends of Anna Little” is her new campaign committee and that Brett Rappaport is her new treasurer. I searched the FEC site again for “Friends of Anna Little” in CD-6. Nothing.
A broader search revealed that Little is a candidate for U.S. Senate, as far as the FEC knows.
Rappaport did not respond to a message asking for an explanation. Jane Frotton, Treasurer of Anna C. Little for Congress Inc, confirmed that the termination report was filed. She also confirmed that “Anna C. Little for Congress Inc” paid for the signs that were distributed this weekend. “They are left overs from the 2010 campaign,” Frotton said.
It would seem that Little now has two campaign committees active in the primary. “Friends of Anna Little” is paying for the website and “Anna C. Little for Congress Inc” paid for the signs.
Rappaport has some work to do.
