Agenda Item
Docket No. 12-439
Request that the Board waive the $2,000, $2,000, and $2,000 campaign finance late fees assessed against Louisiana Leadership, a political action committee, whose 30-P, 10-P, and 10-G campaign finance disclosure reports were filed 476, 456, and 423 days late.
In connection with his request for a waiver of the $2,000, $2,000, and $2,000 late fees assessed for the late filings of a 30-P, 10-P, and 10-G campaign finance reports, R. Gray Sexton, counsel on behalf of the committee, states that a $100 contribution by the committee to Greg Clark, a candidate who participated in the October 2, 2010 election is what triggered the committee to file reports in connection with the October 2010 election. He further states that based upon the committee's level of activity and that the PAC has no other late filings, all but $500 of the late fee assessments should be suspended.
