Swann Campaign Finance Reports Unfiled?
You do, however, have to report those contributions. The two weeks imediately prior to election day you must fax any contribution over $500 on a daily basis. According to the newspaper:
Earlier this month, several of his required pre-primary campaign reports were not filed with the Department of State. And those the campaign did submit during the course of the year included incomplete or unclear information in key parts.
Department of State officials said they did not receive a single 24-hour disclosure statement in the two weeks before the May 16 primary from Swann's campaign.
"We have no record of any statements," department spokeswoman Leslie Amoros said. She said fines were $10 per day for the first six days and $20 per day after that, up to $250.
Swann campaign spokesman Leonardo Alcivar said Wednesday that Swann had received donations of more than $500 shortly before the primary and insisted the campaign had faxed the state the information. "We faxed them every 24 hours," he said. "We complied with the law."
If the Swann campaign did fumble this reporting requirment how can they expect the electorate to have any confidence the former Steeler is competent enough to run state government?
