Now it’s Ray Scott with the “The laws we pass are for thee and not for me” whine.  IF you can’t follow the law, you shouldn’t be making laws.

Rep. Scott thought that filing paperwork for a House run in 2010 meant he was OK for a Senate run in 2014?

Really? How stupid does he think voters are? Every candidate has to file campaign spending reports. Every time they run for office. He wants us to think that filing reports for a previous election means he didnt have to last time he ran???!!! We need to un-elect people like that!

@Lee Cassin—the required report is not a campaign finance report exactly, but a personal financial disclosure report.  I.e., how much money do you make, how much do you have, and were is it stored.  It’s required by January 10 for each member of the legislature and within 10 days of filing by a candidate.  SOS Campaign finance manual states it very clearly:

“State candidates (except for Regional Transportation
District (RTD) candidates) must file a personal financial
disclosure statement (PFD) within 10 days of filing the
candidate affidavit. Incumbents must file a new PFD or
an update to the existing PFD on file on or before
January 10 of each year, and within 10 days of filing a
candidate affidavit if seeking re-election or election to
new office. Failure to file within 10 days will result in a
penalty.”

Scott is either being stupid or evasive.  I won’t speculate on which.
