“This notice requests information essential to full public disclosure of your federal election campaign finances. Failure to adequately respond by the response date noted above could result in an audit or enforcement action.” The FEC letter can be read in its entirety here.
The FEC outlined six separate issues with transparency:
- $6,666.66 in activity was identified as MEMO entries without corresponding itemized transactions. MEMO entries are for disclosing more detailed information about an itemized transaction.

-Aurora Office: Field Expenses
-Denver Field Office
-Jeffco Field Office
