Newly installed Democratic congressman Scott Peters is already entangled in some nagging post-election financial disclosure questions, courtesy of the Federal Election Commission. In a letter to Peters campaign treasurer Nancy Haley, dated January 4, the agency raised issues about his so-called post election filing, covering the reporting period from October 18 through November 6 of last year. “Schedule A of your report indicates that your committee may have failed to file one or more of the required 48-hour notices regarding ‘last minute’ contributions received by your committee after the close of books for the 12 Day Pre-General Report,” the letter says. “To ensure that the Commission is notified of last minute contributions of $1,000 or more to your campaign, it is recommended that you review your procedures for checking contributions received during the aforementioned time period. The failure to file 48-hour notices may result in civil money penalties or legal enforcement action. If any contribution of $1,000 or more was incorrectly reported, you must amend your original report with the clarifying information.” A response from the Peters camp is due by February 8. Asked for comment, Peters spokesperson MaryAnne Pintar responded in an email: “It’s a standard letter. Any issues will be addressed promptly by our Treasurer.”
