WFB: The Federal Election Commission has sent a notice to Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren’s campaign committee, Warren for President, Inc., identifying instances of overly vague accounting descriptions and insufficient details in the campaign’s first quarter financial disclosures.
The FEC notice, dated July 11, 2019, calls for the committee to revise its April quarterly report, providing “information essential to full public disclosure of [the committee’s] federal election campaign finances,” and warns that the campaign may face an audit or enforcement action if it fails to respond.
Among the FEC’s complaints are concerns that the campaign failed to adequately disclose financial exchanges, including contributions from individuals to the campaign and the specifics and purposes of the committee’s spending. The FEC also calls for the committee to fully detail out-of-pocket spending by Warren herself on behalf of the campaign.
The notice gives an August 15th deadline for Warren for President, Inc. to respond with an adequately amended report, more accurately disclosing the campaign’s first quarter finances. read more
