BREAKING: FEC Cites 5 Arizona Candidates For Failing To File Pre-Primary Report

The Federal Elections Commission announced this afternoon that it has cited five Congressional candidates for failing to file their final, pre-primary campaign finance report. Two of the candidates are repeat offenders, and one filed her report today.

The Pre-Primary report was due on August 16, and covered the period from July 1 through August 8. The FEC sent the candidates notices on August 17, and gave them until yesterday to file them without being publicly-named.

The repeat offenders are Nick Pierson, a Republican running to face Rep. Raul Grijalva in CD3, and Jose Torres. Torres is running for the Democratic nomination in Rep. Andy Biggs' CD5.

The other three are:
--Bruce Wheeler, Democrat in CD2
--Catherine Miranda, Democrat in CD7 - she filed her report today
--Irina Baroness Von Behr, Republican in CD9

The FEC has latitude to enforce the reports, and will likely assess administrative fines.
