Tucson Voter Holds McSally Accountable

 

 

This week Delores Grayam, CD-2 voter, volunteer and community leader, filed an FEC complaint against Representative Martha McSally for her repeated refusal to comply with campaign finance regulations. The Pima County Democratic Party is proud of Delores for standing up to McSally and demanding accountability.

 

“We have heard this song before and it is getting old.” said Shasta McManus, Executive Director of the Pima County Democratic Party. “Once again our Republican Representatives are refusing to play by the same rules as everyone else.”

 

“We are not sure if Rep. McSally and her campaign are simply negligent, have a complete disregard for the law or if they have some secrets to hide about who is funding her multi-million dollar operation. Either way, these inherent problems with McSally’s leadership are apparent far beyond her campaign finance reports.”

ICYMI: Tucson resident files FEC complaint against McSally

A Tucson resident has filed a formal complaint with the Federal Elections Commission about gaps in Congresswoman Martha McSally’s campaign bookkeeping, as the FEC itself prods McSally to provide missing information.

The complaint, filed Friday on behalf of Virginia Delores Grayam, accuses McSally of violating campaign finance law by failing to report the required employer and occupation information for a significant number of donors.

For the first two quarters of this year, the complaint says, the McSally campaign failed to report employer and occupation information for 70 percent of its individual donors. For the 2013-2014 campaign cycle, that information was missing for 26 percent of donors.

The FEC has sent McSally 14 letters about finance-related issues. Her staff has said it’s working to resolve the issues.

According to OpenSecrets.org, McSally’s non-disclosure rate of 26 percent in 2013-14 was more than six times greater than the rate for the next closest member of the Arizona delegation, Democratic Congressman Ruben Gallego, at 4.2 percent. The seven other members of the delegation were at 1 percent or less.

McSally won her 2nd Congressional District seat in 2014 by about 200 votes over Democratic incumbent Ron Barber.
