Party at my house - August 14th!

O.K. - not really.

August 13th at midnight, 30 day campaign finance reports are due. By legal definition, candidates are instructed to give an accurate accounting of their current finances, list any and all donors who gave $100 or more, and show the health of their campaign war chests.

As you may remember, Mike Protack treated his last 30 day report like a note from Epstein's Mother. He claimed to have a lot more money than he actually did, and didn't bother to list where it had come from. He had random receiptless expenditures, and didn't bother to explain what they were for.

This year I expect the same. I expect more from the State Board of Elections, who created these rules for a reason, and have allowed Protack to break election laws in the past. I don't believe that (finally) being charged with false reporting would affect his Quixotic obsession with public office, but maybe someday it will be enough to keep him off the ballot.

You and me both!

It hasn't been scanned into the system. delaware.gov hasn't scanned in anything in some time.

FOIA!

Perhaps the State laws don't apply here. This is the calendar for the FEC's rules regarding pre-primary reporting.

The above lists all documents pertaining to the Campaign to Elect Mike Protack, including his NOTICE OF FAILURE TO FILE. The July Quarterly, which is where Protack claims to have over $100,000, has no itemized donations. If Mike Protack is claiming that he has received that sum in increments of under $100 (the threshhold for reporting individual donations), I'm calling him a liar.

Hey dumbass. Yes, you Rick. Federal candidates do not have to file a 30 day report with the State Board of Elections.
...And before you bitch about it, there is no law requiring Federal candidates to file an 8 day report either
