Where is Jeff Thompson's itemized list of contributors?

After perusing the FEC website for 4th District congressional candidates disclosures, it seems that two of them are incomplete and *one is nonexistant. First, let's look at the candidates that seem to have filed complete returns. Chris Gorman, Paul Carmouche, Willie Banks, Jr and John Milkovich have filed full disclosures including lists of individual contributors.

Dr. Fleming, a Minden physician and a businessman, listed $104,058 in individual contributions, but lists only 5 contributions for a total of $2,800. Where are the rest?

Jeff Thompson, a lawyer, lists individual contributions of $253,515 but attaches no detailed list of donors. We called Thompson's campaign headquarters today and were told that 'it should be there.' Yes it should. It is hard to understand why Jim McCrery's hand-picked successor, a lawyer, does not find it necessary to disclose this information in a timely manner. Thompson has some really hot competition, especially from Chris Gorman, and cannot afford this kind of snafu.

*Just as a side note, Arti$ Ca$h, despite repeated pleas on his website, apparently has not received any contributions, or at least has not reported them to the FEC.

  1. Perhaps you have a problem with the computer or the FEC had a glitch, because I went straight to the report and found it with no trouble.

    Here's a link for you:

    The FEC has changed the way it posts reports from years past, and it takes a little getting used to. To download the reports you first have to download a program. If you view the reports, there are links in blue that take you to various sections of the report.


Rules of the road:
1. No personal attacks or insults.
2. No accustory statements about wrongdoing or criminal acts against anyone.
3. Say all you want about the pros and cons concerning the candidates and the issues, or the general subject of the blog post, just follow Rule #1 and Rule #2.
