Martha McSally Might Be in Trouble Over Missing Info in Her Campaign Bookkeeping

Posted By on Tue, Aug 4, 2015 at 10:30 AM

A Tucson resident has filed a formal complaint with the Federal Election Commission against U.S. Rep. Martha McSally over missing information in her campaign bookkeeping. 
The complaint was filed Friday on behalf of Virginia Delores Grayam, and it accuses McSally of violating campaign finance law, because the Tucson Republican did not report the required employer and occupation of more than half of individual donors the first two quarters of this year, according to an article by 12 News' Brahm Resnik. And for the 2013-2014 campaign cycle, that information was missing for 26 percent of donors.

From the article:
The freshman Republican's campaign staff has had to scramble over the last two weeks to correct reports that overstated current year fundraising by $4 million. The FEC has sent McSally 14 letters about finance-related issues. Her staff has said it's working to resolve the issues.

According to OpenSecrets.org, McSally's non-disclosure rate of 26 percent in 2013-14 was more than six times greater than the rate for the next closest member of the Arizona delegation, Democratic Congressman Ruben Gallego, at 4.2 percent. The seven other members of the delegation were at 1 percent or less.
