ADR program update

May 1, 2006

The Commission has made public two more cases resolved in the Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) program. The respondents, the alleged violations of the Federal Election Campaign Act (the Act) and the final disposition of the cases are listed below.

  1. The Commission reached an agreement with Steven Reifman for Congress, Andrew Glazer, treasurer, regarding failure to report debt. The respondents agreed to amend all their reports to reflect a disputed debt until it is resolved and to work with FEC staff to terminate the committee within 60 days. If the committee decides within 60 days not to terminate, it will send a representative to an FEC seminar within 12 months. (ADR 275).
  2. The Commission reached an agreement with Porter for Congress, Chrissie Hastie, treasurer, regarding inaccurate debt reporting. The respondents stated that the missing information on the report was due to delayed billing. The respondents agreed pay a $3,500 civil penalty, to record all contracts for services and to ensure that appropriate committee staff members participate in the approval process. They also agree to provide internal training on reporting requirements, and to prepare and maintain a manual of the committee’s operating procedures. (ADR 296*)
