FEC to Anna Little: You’ve got some ‘splaining to do

“Please file an amendment to your report to accurately disclose your financial activities.”

The Federal Election Commission wrote Anna Little’s congressional campaign three times during the month of August to demand that her campaign finance reports comply with federal law.

The letters were addressed to Little’s opposite sex husband, Robert Lee Little III, the campaign’s fourth treasurer this year.

On August 24th  FEC analyst Carolina Cavana wrote the male Little informing him that the campaign’s April 2012 quarterly report failed to adequately disclose the identity of donors who contributed $200 or more to the campaign.  The campaign must disclose the missing information or prove that it made a good faith effort to obtain the information.  The answer is due by September 28th and there will be no further notice given, unless Rob reads MMM.

Another FEC analyst, Brian Jones, wrote to Little III, who is Treasurer IV, on August 27 to inform him that the 12 day pre-primary report, filed on June 27 three weeks after the primary,  is also missing the donor information that April report was missing.  The answer to that letter is due on October 1.

Jones wrote again on August 28 detailing 4 problems with the July 2012 quarterly report including contributions accepted for the primary campaign, post primary, beginning balances that did not match ending balances for the April report, and a ending cash balance of negative $11,321.08 in the July report.

Your report discloses a negative ending cash balance of $11,321.08. This suggests that you have overdrawn your account, made a mathematical error, or incurred a debt. If your committee has incurred a debt or obligation, please itemize this debt on Schedule D, show a zero balance on Line 8 of the Summary Page and include the amount on Line 10. If the negative ending cash balance is a result of an overdraft, it may constitute a prohibited bank contribution unless it is made on an account that has automatic overdraft protection with usual and customary interest rates and a definite repayment schedule. Please file an amendment to your report to accurately disclose your financial activities.

The answer to the August 28 letter is due on October 2.

If you missed the bake sale or the bikini car wash, you can support Little’s campaign by purchasing a lawn sign for $26.

    Is that this is the best, willing, candidate we had to offer.

    Well, we can thank the Tea Party and the Ethically Challenged Insider they support–Bennett–for this travesty.

    To Dismantle This Bayshore Tea Party After The Election & Build A New One With Sound Leaders.

    This is the wisdom of the Bayshore Tea Party. Babs, Bob, Mark – what a braintrust. If you want the closest thing to a sure bet you’ll ever get, find out who they support and bet on the other guy. Embarassing and getting worse. Losing members, driving away like-minded potential members and acting like clowns when this country is on the verge of collapse.

    I was going to buy the $26 yard sign, but then I found out you had to pay for shipping too!

    Now if the yard sign could sing then I would pay for the shipping!

    lf only i knew this when i put two dozen 2010 signs in the landfill i was sitting on a goldmine—i would have sold at $20

  10. Interesting said at 12:33 am on September 14th, 2012:

    I wonder if the stuff for sale that has no year are leftovers???

    I hope they don’t get recycled one more time!
    Seems like Rob Little needs a calculator that works…haha

  11. ok, children, said at 4:31 pm on September 14th, 2012:

    we get it- but there’s really no need to keep pounding on someone in such a difficult race and position!.. do you really think Ernesto’d be doing any better against Palloney?.. doubt it!.. in case you missed it, even Romney needs us to buy his signs: he’s in the race of our lives,for the saving of this country- so, focus: we need to do the best we can, for all who are on the ticket this year, like them, or not!.. chill!…
