    In a Wednesday interview with SuperTalk 99.7 WTN host Michael DelGiorno, TN-5 candidate Andy Ogles misled the public again on the subject of his late-filed July quarterly campaign finance report and declined to address the reason why he late-filed. Ogles filed his first campaign finance report for the Federal Election Commission (FEC) April 1 through June 30 reporting period on Saturday, July 23, eight days after the July 15 deadline. When he did file, it was revealed that Ogles loaned the campaign $320,000 on April 15 but had only raised roughly $66,600 in contributions by May 11, according to a contribution-by-contribution analysis of his campaign’s second-quarter report filed with the FEC conducted by The Tennessee Star. Ogles proceeded to make several factually inaccurate statements which did not address the reason why the report was filed late. He alluded to pledged but not received contributions, and said he was using the same campaign strategy as JD Vance in the May 2022 GOP senate primary in Ohio. Opponents may jump on Ogles’ explanation as a description of activities that cross the line...
    Lauren Boebert believes the world owes her an apology for making her hate herself so much. I have to warn you up front: If schadenfreude moves you emotionally, you might want to grab a few boxes of tissues. What were once unconfirmed reports are now confirmed: Colorado gun fetishist and dubious campaign finance garbage fire Lauren Boebert’s Shooters Grill in Rifle, Colorado, is out of business. The congresswoman has been on the forever MAGA campaign trail of late, promoting openly racist gun fetishists who pretend they are pro life. On the one hand, this is not a surprise, as it was only a couple of weeks ago that Boebert told The Daily Beast that Shooters Grill’s lease had not been renewed. Boebert’s campaign finances have also seemed to have crossed potentially illegal paths with the business after one of her many wild campaign finance reports showed thousands of dollars being sent to the Grill’s address for unclear reasons. On the other hand, most people not interested in eating around a bunch of crucifixes and guns didn’t enjoy Shooters Grill. And subsequently ratings on...
    The attorney representing the Ohio woman who filed a campaign finance complaint against businessman Joe Blystone’s gubernatorial campaign blasted the Ohio Elections Commission (OEC), saying the government organization has done a disservice to voters by failing to take action against Blystone’s campaign for alleged financial mismanagement. “They hamstrung the voters,” Curt Hartman, attorney for complainant Mary Cappellan, told The Star Friday. “The heart of campaign finance is full disclosure and information available to the voting public. It’s disappointing in the Elections Commission’s initial delay that they didn’t appreciate that that’s why they exist.” Hartman said he had to push the OEC to expedite the hearings on the complaint, noting that state law mandated a speedier process because the complaint came within 60 days of the primary election. At first, he said, the commission stalled. Finally, he received a phone call Tuesday telling him of Thursday’s expedited hearing before the panel. That panel decided that there was probable cause to further investigate Blystone’s campaign finance recording practices, but that hearing won’t happen until May 3, the day before the primary election....
    Hillary Clinton's former campaign lawyer - the man who spearheaded a dirt-digging investigation that led to the unsubstantiated 'dirty dossier' on Donald Trump - is now working for Black Lives Matters, according to the secretive foundation's most recent tax filing. Attorney Marc Elias's eponymous law firm was named several times in Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation's charity registration renewal filing, which was submitted in California on February 11. The Elias Law Group is identified in the filings as the organization in charge of the books. The forms also listed longtime Clinton ally Minyon Moore as a member of its board of directors. Elias and the Democratic National Committee funded a research campaign during the 2016 presidential election that was led by former British spy Christopher Steele, who produced the 'golden showers' dossier on Trump. Black Lives Matter also referenced the Elias Law Group in a New Mexico charity registration statement, the Washington Examiner reported. Lawyer Marc Elias, who helped fund the now-debunked 'golden shower' dossier on Donald Trump, is now working for the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation A...
                 In an exclusive interview with The Ohio Star, the lawyer representing a whistleblower and former co-campaign manager for Joseph K. Blystone‘s quest for the Republican gubernatorial nomination, Sarah Chambers that the Federal Bureau of Investigation agents are probing Blystone’s campaign finances. “Sarah and I met with them on Thursday, November 18, in their Columbus office,” said Scott A. Pullins, a Mount Vernon attorney whose practice has included representing many campaigns and campaign law compliance clients. Pullins also said Secretary of State Frank LaRose, and his Campaign Finance Division, received evidence of Blystone campaign finance misconduct and took no action. FBI reaches out to Chambers The graduate of The Ohio State University and the Capital University Law School said he also took note that FBI Special Agent Blaine Wetzel, one of the agents who interviewed Chambers that day, was listed as a virtual attendee at the December 16 Ohio Elections Commission hearing, where the commission reviewed the 51-page campaign finance complaint filed by Chambers and other former senior Blystone campaign staffers October 28 against Blystone, his wife, and campaign...

                      by Andrew Kerr  Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar possibly committed a felony by failing to properly report her assets and income in her financial disclosure reports to the House of Representatives, a conservative-leaning watchdog group alleged in a complaint filed Tuesday. The group, National Legal and Policy Center (NLPC), demanded the Office of Congressional Ethics (OCE) investigate why Omar’s financial disclosures make no reference to the income she may have received from her memoir published in May 2020, as well as the Democratic lawmaker’s apparently gross undervaluation of her new husband’s consulting firm, which raked in nearly $3 million from Omar’s political campaign from 2018 through 2020, campaign finance records show. “Representative Omar’s apparent disclosure omissions and misreporting violate House ethics rules, the Ethics in Government act, and possibly 18 U.S.C. 1001, a felony with penalties up to five years in prison for making false statements in a matter before the legislative branch,” NLPC wrote in its complaint. “There is clearly more than ‘reasonable cause to believe’ that disclosure violations may have occurred.” A...
    By MICHAEL R. BLOOD | The Associated Press LOS ANGELES  — Larry Elder, a talk radio host and Republican candidate in the California recall election that could remove Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom from office, reported income of more than $100,000 in the last year from business interests that included media and film companies and a string of political speeches, according to documents released Tuesday. Records prepared for state regulators also showed Elder received income from advertising for a health supplement and work for the right-wing Epoch Times newspaper. Elder, 69, who also is known for his appearances on Fox News, has eclipsed his GOP rivals in fundraising since entering the recall contest on July 12. Elder’s swift rise to prominence in the campaign has drawn the attention of Newsom, who has been centering his attacks on him, calling Elder out of step with California families and progressive values. Last week, Newsom and Elder clashed over mask and vaccine mandates supported by the governor, which Elder said “will be suspended right away” if he takes office. The election is set for...
    Amanda Marcotte September 8, 2020 5:26PM (UTC) The "Death Star": At the beginning of this year, that's what Donald Trump's then-campaign manager, Brad Parscale, dubbed the billion-dollar fundraising operation at the heart of the Trump campaign. The choice was a telling one, largely as a reminder that many Republicans in the Trump era are not only aware that they're the bad guys, but are proud to align themselves with some of the notorious villains of pop culture history. But more than one commentator was also quick to point out that the Death Star isn't just a symbol of evil, but of hubris, because it's destroyed by the plucky heroes who may be outgunned but have the wit and courage to defeat the foolhardy tyrants of the Empire.  : "Dude, the Death Star gets blown up in the end of just about every Star Wars movie," MSNBC host Joe Scarborough tweeted back in May, in response to Parscale bragging that he was about to "start pressing FIRE for the first time" on Trump's "juggernaut campaign." Life rarely plays out like a children's sci-fi movie, but I am...
            by Andrew Kerr  Cori Bush, the Justice Democrats-supported progressive activist that defeated 10-term Rep. William Lacy Clay Jr. in Tuesday’s Democratic primary in Missouri, is at least a year late in disclosing her finances to the public as required by federal law, public records show. Bush has yet to submit her personal financial disclosure to the House of Representatives for her 2020 campaign, according to the House Office of the Clerk, which maintains a database of financial disclosures of congressional candidates and members of Congress. That hasn’t stopped Bush from funneling over $25,000 from her campaign to her own pockets in the form of a salary with payments beginning in April, Federal Election Commission records show. A candidate’s failure to file their financial disclosure form is “technically a violation of the Ethics in Government Act,” government affairs lobbyist Craig Holman of the liberal advocacy group Public Citizen told the Daily Caller News Foundation. However, the statute is “rarely enforced unless the violation is egregious and deliberate,” he added. Candidates such as Bush that don’t disclose their...
    Donald Trump’s campaign is reportedly taking a deep dive into its finances after the demotion of now-former campaign manager Brad Parscale, who was known for his lavish lifestyle and loose spending habits. The Trump campaign announced this week that Parscale was being moved out of his role as head of the campaign and into a role where he will be working on data collection, which was his forte during the 2016 election. While the Trump campaign said there was no connection between Parscale’s demotion and the decision to run an audit of its finances, Republican sources told Business Insider that it was indeed about Parscale. The report claimed that Trump grew “p*ssed” after a report that Parscale had chosen to run the campaign from a poolside location in Florida, leading to a “full autopsy” of campaign finances. Other reports had pointed to Parscale’s spending as a potential liability for Trump, as well as his inexperience in leading a national campaign. As The Daily Beast added, Parscale had gained a reputation for his love of expensive items. “Parscale, reportedly called the...
