Three days after a spokesperson for the Anna Little for Congress campaign told PolitickerNJ that Little’s delinquent campaign finance reports would be filed “immediately” the Middlesex County GOP’s endorsed candidate has yet to file with the federal agency as a candidate.
PolitickerNJ called the Little campaign on Wednesday over the story that MMM has been reporting and updating on since early May. Initially a campaign volunteer claimed that Little’s reports had been filed nine months ago and blamed a backlog of paperwork at the FEC for the reports not being posted online. An FEC spokeswoman told PoltickerNJ that there was no backlog and that every report the agency received from Little was posted on their site.
Little filed a termination report for her “Anna C. Little for Congress, Inc.” campaign committee on April 2. The FEC issued an acceptance of the termination on April 12. The termination report says that Little raised $71,000 more than she spent as a candidate.
In February, Little filed “Friends of Anna Little” as a campaign committee for her aborted run for U.S. Senate. “Friends of Anna Little” is the committee listed on the congressional campaign website . It yet has not yet been terminated as a senate campaign or registered as a congressional campaign.
Little’s husband, Rob, told PolitickerNJ that the campaign spending reports would be filed by primary day, Tuesday June 5. The required statement of organization could easily have been filed on Thursday or Friday. That would have qualified as “immediately.”
With just four days left until the Republican primary, 6th District Congressional candidate Anna Little has yet to file her official Federal Election Commission paperwork or any fundraising reports for her candidacy. Little’s team called it an oversight and promised to fix it immediately.
