NY-27: Brian Higgins Fails To File Required FEC Reports

This news release from the Federal Election Commission apparently missed the radar of the Buffalo News

WASHINGTON — The Federal Election Commission (FEC) cited four campaign committees today for failing to file the Pre-Primary Report required by the Federal Election Campaign Act (the Act) for primary elections on September 9.

As of 5 p.m. September 5, 2008, the required disclosure report had not been received from Barb Davis White for Congress, the principal campaign committee for Barbara Davis White in Minnesota’s 5th district whose treasurer is Ly’neys Rita Hill; Higgins for Congress, the principal campaign committee for Brian Higgins in New York’s 27th district whose treasurer is Gary M. Kanaley; Friends of Graham Long, principal campaign committee for Graham E. Long in New York’s 3rd district whose treasurer is Anita Long; and Stark for Congress, principal campaign committee for Paul Stark in Wisconsin’s 3rd district whose treasurer is John Sackett.

The reports were due on August 28, 2008, and should have included financial activity for the period July 1, 2008, through August 20, 2008.  If sent by certified or registered mail, the report should have been postmarked by August 25, 2008.

The committees were notifed in early August of their requirement. So, why didn’t Brian Higgins file his reports, and why hasn’t this been considered newsworthy by the Buffalo News?
