County clerk-recorder candidate Barry Pruett said Monday night he “accidentally” missed a deadline for filing campaign finance paperwork that was due at the close of business.
The other candidates had turned in their paperwork on time, as I reported here.
“The missed deadline will be remedied tomorrow by the campaign’s volunteer treasurer,” Pruett said.
An Election’s Office official told me earlier in the day that candidates could be fined for failing later paperwork, as Pruett did — showing it is a serious matter. But she added fines weren’t normally issued.
The full report will be posted on Pruett’s website by 5 p.m. tomorrow, the candidate said.
Pruett listed donations from Kimberly Janousek ($100), Betty Hood ($80), George Rebane ($280), and Greg Marks ($80), among others — all conservative stalwarts. Janousek is co-owner of B&C Home and Garden Center in Grass Valley.
UPDATE: On Tuesday, Preutt included a link with the completed document. It is here. I noticed, for example, a $100 contribution from Fran Freedle, who also is the Treasurer. The background in Fran is here. Shouldn’t she know the deadline with this background?
