Oregon: State proposes $10,000 fine against Lane Co. Republicans

November 13, 2004

EUGENE, OR (AP) — The state has proposed a maximum $10,000 fine against the Lane County Republican Party after it took nearly six months to correct inaccuracies in a campaign fund-raising report.

The Oregon Elections Division notified the party of the proposed penalty after the county GOP filed its corrected report on fund-raising and spending through April 1. The report had been due May 10 but was not filed until last week.

Originally, party officials reported contributions totaling $40,093, with a cash balance of $5,731. But after fixing errors in that report, they determined their contributions had been only $17,936, and they really had only $1,431 on hand at the end of the reporting period.
