Federal Election Commission says Kobach missing Congressional campaign reports

February 19, 2011


— The Federal Election Commission has notified Secretary of State Kris Kobach that he has missing reports from his Congressional campaign.

Kobach told The Hutchinson News the campaign account for his unsuccessful 2004 bid for the 3rd Congressional District seat is essentially shut down. But the FEC said the account is still opened.

The last quarterly report for Kobach for Congress was filed in 2008. Since then, the FEC has issued eight failure-to-file-report notices to Kobach for Congress. Typically, a campaign report to the FEC details how money is disbursed when an account is closed. That report has not been filed for Kobach for Congress.

Kobach said some money was returned to contributors and other money went to candidates. He said he hopes to get the reports filed in a few months.

One would think an elected clerk (AKA Sec. of State) could make sure staff gets paperwork done on time.
