FEC investigates McSally’s numerous campaign violations

Posted by on | June 18, 2018 | No Comments

A regulatory panel of the Federal Election Commission (FEC) has unanimously approved an audit of U.S. Rep. Martha McSally’s 2014 congressional campaign. 

To say this is not good news for the current U.S. Senate candidate, often referred to as Sally McCain — for obvious reasons — is the height of understatement. 

The commissioners making up the investigatory panel includes two Republicans, one Democrat and one Independent. They found Martha McSally failed to properly disclose finances and omitted employment information from over 1,200 individual campaign contributors.

Following a recount, McSally, who was expected to fare better, won the 2014 race against Democrat Ron Barber by 161 votes, a mere 0.1%.

This FEC Memorandum is stunning in its scope. Scroll down to Part III ‘Summaries’ and Part IV ‘Findings and Recommendations,’ for the complete report which includes:

Finding 1. Misstatement of Financial Activity

Finding 2. Disclosure of Occupation/Name of Employer

Finding 3. Receipt of Contributions in Excess of the Limit

Finding 4. Failure to File 48-Hour Notices

Finding 5. Failure to Itemize Contributions from Political Committees

Last month the Hillary Clinton-endorsing Arizona Republic veered far off the reservation using the word “liberal” as a pejorative, with this headline, “Liberal group: Martha McSally improperly raising money for House, Senate at same time.”  Although the newspaper hasn’t yet touched this latest McSally fiasco, it’s clearly preparing to ditch her in favor of meticulously repackaged leftist Kyrsten Sinema, who no longer touts her bisexuality, allegiance to atheism, sends May Day messages to the Communist Worker news or crudely derides stay-at-home moms as “leeches.”

Fortunately Arizonans have a superior option. Principled conservative senate candidate Dr. Kelli Ward, who had a private medical practice and worked as an emergency room physician while serving as a two-term state senator, knows that attention to detail is necessary when patients’ lives hang in the balance. Sloppiness is not part of her mindset. The differences are clear. Kelli Ward has won the endorsements of leading conservatives. Join them by donating to and volunteering on her campaign. Senate terms are six years long, There won’t be a buyer’s remorse do-over.
