NV Dems File New FEC Complaint Against Danny Tarkanian
Las Vegas, NV – The Nevada State Democratic Party today filed a new complaint with the Federal Elections Commission against Danny Tarkanian for Congress. The complaint is based off of illegal campaign contributions Tarkanian has received and hundreds of thousands of dollars in operating expenditures Tarkanian has failed to disclose.
Among the reasons for the complaint:
• Tarkanian accepted an ILLEGAL $2,500 contribution above the legal limit from DeWayne Zinkin.
• Tarkanian failed to refund multiple ILLEGAL corporate contributions within the 30 day required period from 5 different entities.
• Because of a lack of proper accounting, Tarkanian failed to properly report as much as $250,000 in operating expenditures, which makes it impossible to determine what Tarkanian is spending money on.
“If Danny Tarkanian runs his business as sloppily as he runs his campaign's finances, we’d strongly suggest he take an Accounting 101 course,” said Nevada State Democratic Party Chair Roberta Lange. “Understanding elementary accounting may not find him the $17 million he recently became in need of, but it would at least potentially stop him from breaking the law. While Danny Tarkanian may think he can play by his own set of rules, we're going to hold him accountable.”
