Committees fail to file pre-election reports

October 1, 2006

Three committees failed to file a 12-day pre-primary report in connection with the Florida primary election held on September 5, 2006:

  • Neree for U.S. Congress;
  • Chagnon for US Congress; and
  • Harms for Congress.

Eight committees also failed to file 12-day pre-primary reports for primary elections held on September 12, 2006:

  • Jeff Latas for Congress, Arizona;
  • Susan Friedman for Congress, Arizona;
  • Campaign to Elect Mike Protack, Delaware;
  • Maloney for Congress, New York;
  • Zanzi for Congress, New York;
  • Green for Change, New York;
  • Raleigh for Congress, New York; and
  • Tyberg for Congress, Wisconsin.

Prior to the reporting deadlines, the Commission notified all affected committees of their filing obligations. Committees that failed to file the required reports were subsequently notified 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 Campaign Act requires the Commission to publish the names of principal campaign committees if they fail to file 12-day pre-election reports or the quarterly report due before the candidate’s election. 2 U.S.C. §437g(b). The agency may also pursue enforcement actions against nonfilers and late filers on a case-by-case basis.
