Secretary of State Ross Miller Responsible for Democrats
Trying to Hide Campaign Expenditures
The following statement was issued today by Citizen Outreach CEO Dan Burdish.
(Las Vegas, NV) – Secretary of State Ross Miller is all a twitter that certain Democrat Legislators are not declaring all their expenses in their Contribution and Expense Reports. Assemblywomen Debbie Smith (D - Sparks) and Lucy Flores (D - Las Vegas) and Assemblyman David Bobzien (D - Reno) all admitted in a story in the Las Vegas Sun that they did not disclose all the disbursements from their campaign accounts. Perhaps Mr. Miller should look in the mirror to see who is responsible for this lack of transparency.
On October 28, 2010 I submitted a complaint to Mr. Miller’s office because the Assembly Democrat Caucus did not disclose all contributions and expenses, as required by law, on their Contribution and Expense Report. On December 9, 2010 Mr. Miller’s office issued an opinion saying they did not have to report all expenses and contributions. Either through negligence or incompetence Mr. Miller’s office has created this mess. Mr. Miller now says “The law is clear: Anytime you raise money into a campaign account and you spend that money, it is an expenditure that must be reported.”
