18th District wrap up.

Of all the candidates in the 18th District, only one actually filed this week.

Neither Dennis Kampe, Brandon Vick, Anthony Bittner (who hasn't filed a C-3 form since late April... not illegal, but a sign of zero fund raising) nor the educationally and integrity-challenged Jon Russell filed C-3's this week.

It is, of course, perfectly legal to not file C-3's when you haven't raised any money over the preceding week. But lacking the ability or reason to file?

That's not so good.

Ann Rivers, on the other hand, filed for $1300 for the week.

Russell, of course, has been and continues to be in violation of PDC laws since he announced as a state representative candidate, failing to file electronically; using state representative funds to pay congressional campaign debt (I'm looking into an FEC complaint over that one) and various other violations.

I won't be filing a complaint against Russell this week because he hasn't filed this week.

But until he gets himself into compliance with the law of this state (Kinda bizarre, ain't it? A state representative candidate who has deliberately violated the law for months?) EVERY time he files a manual report I'm going to nail him with ANOTHER complaint.

Yes.... it's been a bleak week for most in the 18.

I believe it's going to get bleaker.
