Ceci Iglesias has filed some of the missing reports for her campaign. In reviewing them, we have found a few questionable, if not outright illegal, campaign contributions.
In her Late Expenditure Report for contributions as of 10-16-10 (filed late) we found $11,500 in contributions from El Tapatio (Victor Ibarra) for a fundraising event. The maximum contribution from an individual is $2,400 for any election period. This contribution exceeds that amount and fails to identify the individual contributor(s) who gave the money.
Her Third Quarter report (filed late), Iglesias reported receiving a contribution from El Carbonero for $5,236 for a fundraising event on July 17th. This contribution is also not legal for the same reasons as noted above.
Ceci Iglesias filed her last three campaign finance reports late by more than 4 days, the last report for ate expenditures appears to have been filed at least 11 days late. There are administrative penalties for such late filings. Our preliminary calculation of the possible fines Iglesias faces comes in at about $7,397. This does not account for whatever the fine is for accepting contributions over the limits, in cash, or from undisclosed contributors.
Something’s fishy here.
What ever those fines add up to one thing is clear, Ceci Iglesias isn’t ready for prime time. I wonder if she is ready for jail time?
