Sam Thompson on Anna Little’s FEC Reports: “I have no idea”

Middlesex County GOP Chairman, Senator Sam Thompson, is as puzzled as the rest of us as to why Anna Little has not registered with the Federal Election Commission as a candidate for congress.

Little has the Middlesex GOP endorsement in her primary battle with Ernesto Cullari, the Monmouth County GOP endorsed candidate for the nomination for the 6th congressional district seat in the House of Representatives.

Asked why Little would have terminated her congressional campaign account, “Anna C. Little for Congress Inc.,” with the FEC, which she did on April 2, while maintaining her U.S. Senatorial candidate status through her “Friends of Anna Little” account, Thompson said, “I have no idea.”

Asked why her “Termination Report” would indicate $71 thousand more in receipts than expenditures yet show a zero balance, Thompson said, “I have a hard enough time keeping my own campaign finance reports straight.”

    Thompson said, “I have a hard enough time keeping my own campaign finance reports straight.”

    Really Sam? That only leads to the uncomfortable thought of how does he keep the Middlesex County Republican Organizations finance reports straight? These kinds of statements do not instill confidence in our “leaders.” This is another example of why Sam Thompson needs to step away from the position of County Chair. Nice old gentleman, but his time is passed.

    Beyond that, to have given Little the Middlesex line while they have no clue about Anna’s finances tells me there was no vetting.

    Not that the Nudniks will bother, but maybe a call the The Press might cause them to do an investigative story about Anna Little’s campaign accounts.

    Is the whole Little campaign a late April Fool’s joke? And why did Sam Thompson cut a deal with Anna to get her out of the Senate race she had no shot of winning, anyway? The Middlesex GOP is an embarassment. The whole board should be replaced.

    Holy cow I can’t believe she raised $71,000.00.

    The problem here is that you can’t read an FEC reports. That magic number .. 71k is the amount left in the account on midnight of election day(Election Cycle-to-Date). Here is the report (post election)


    Notice the cash on hand number of 9k. NOT 71K. If you look at the final disbursements, half of that goes to the accountant.

    Lets focus on the ISSUES instead of these witch hunts.

    It would be nice to focus on the issues, However it seems hard to do since Little wont debate Cullari in a fair and impartial forum. If she really wanted to discuss the issues, and make the case why anyone should support her efforts to lose to Pallone a second time, then why is she afraid to face Cullari?
    The bottom line is that she snookered the Middlesex GOP, who should have looked at the fact that he home turf GOP wouldnt support her and ask why?
    Are these the kinds of “issues” that are being referred to?

    Yikes….I find myself in agreement with Freespeaker1976

  7. If you run a deficit in your campaign....... said at 11:25 pm on May 30th, 2012:

    how can we then trust you won’t run a deficit in Congress Mrs. Little? $71,000 is not a small amount. It’s more than a lot of people make. And you call yourself a fiscal conservative? HAHA! Bayshore Tea Party again proving that they don’t do the proper vetting and only want to endorse candidates not endorsed by the “establishment”, unless of course the “establishment” candidate gives them $1,000 for a fundraiser then they’re okay.
