Within about 12 hours of this blog’s reporting of Moving Longmont Forward‘s questionable campaign report and $1,500 contribution by big labor organization AFSCME, their registered agent Teresa Lichti had to scramble to the Longmont City Clerk’s office to amend their report. Although this was reported as a violation of the LFCPA, it appears the presumption of innocence might be overplayed when there should be a question of honesty.
The complaint reads as follows: Alleged Violation(s): Failure to disclose a contribution
A $1500 contribution made by AFSCME to Moving Longmont Forward was received on 10/14/11, which is during the 2nd reporting period which closed on 10/15/11. MLF made their amended 2nd period report on 10/19/11 but did not report this contribution. It was reported on 10/26/11 in their 3rd report, 12 days after the contribution was received. Also, this AFSCME contribution was not reported as a “political committee contribution” on Schedule A.
