Former Nevada Senate Candidate Angle Pays $25,000 Civil Penalty

The campaign committee of Sharron Angle, the 2010 Republican candidate against Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., has paid a $25,725 penalty in a settlement negotiated with the Federal Election Commission.

An audit of the Friends of Sharron Angle committee by the FEC found that the campaign had not filed 48-hour pre-election disclosure notices for $243,750 in contributions, and the campaign had not itemized $2,287,080 in debts and obligations.

The Angle campaign raised and spent $28 million from February 2009 to December 2010. The committee has $16,802 in cash on hand as of March 31. The accounting was handled by paid staff of the committee. The law firm of Foley and Lardner was paid $3,885 in the first quarter of 2013 for legal fees. The penalty payment was disclosed in the committee’s recent first quarter report. The FEC has not yet released a compliance file on this matter.

    Does this really say that Sharon Angle did not understand the campaign finance laws and hired an in house accountant to handle this matter? Not understanding the law or accounting makes her the perfect Republican candidate.

    Here in Nevada we are happy to see the back of her. I sincerely hopes she finds a job as a slot girl working for Sheldon or Donald. I’m sure they would welcome her.
