FEC Cites Four Committees for Failure to File 12-Day Pre-Primary Financial Reports

WASHINGTON -- The Federal Election Commission (FEC) cited four campaign committees for failing to file the 12-Day Pre-Primary Election Report required by the Federal Election Campaign Act of 1971, as revised (the Act), for Tennessee’s primary election being held on August 5, 2010.

As of August 3, 2010, the required disclosure reports had not been received from:

  • Committee to Elect Van Irion (TN-3)
  • Friends of Brent Staton (TN-3)
  • Lonnie Spivak for Congress (TN-5); and
  • Committee to Elect Dr. Greg Rabidoux (TN-7).

The reports were due on July 24, 2010, and should have included financial activity for the period July 1, 2010, through July 16, 2010. If sent by certified or registered mail, the reports should have been postmarked by July 21, 2010.

The FEC notified committees involved in the Tennessee primary election of their potential filing requirements on June 30, 2010. Those committees that did not file on the due date were sent notification on July 26, 2010 that their reports had not been received and that their names would be published if they did not respond within four business days.

The Federal Election Commission (FEC) is an independent regulatory agency that administers and enforces federal campaign finance laws. The FEC has jurisdiction over the financing of campaigns for the U.S. House of Representatives, the U.S. Senate, the Presidency and the Vice Presidency. Established in 1975, the FEC is composed of six Commissioners who are nominated by the President and confirmed by the U.S. Senate.
