Oakland County political gossip

FEE-VOLITY

November 21, 2017

 Speaking of PAC money, a Livingston County Democratic Party official has filed a complaint with the Federal Elections Commission (FEC) over the alleged failure for a political action committee associated with Bishop to file any financial disclosure reports, according to The Detroit News. The complaint was filed by the Democratic party’s county chairperson, and comes just weeks after the paper reported the Rochester Republican failed to file any such reports associated with his leadership committee, Making Bold Initiatives + Solutions To Help America (M-BISH PAC).  Federal records show campaign finance reports were filed by the committee on November 4, a day after The Detroit News reported on the issue. Craig Mauger, executive director of the Michigan Campaign Finance Network, said late filings aren’t uncommon. “It’s not unusual, but there are varying degrees of how bad the mistakes are,” he said. Earlier this year, the organization issued a report noting that at least 50 percent of state lawmakers paid fees for failure to comply with Michigan’s reporting requirements. Those fees totaled $97,000 in recent years.
