Md.'s Bartlett Cited for Campaign Finance Violations

Monday, 25 June 2012 09:07 AM EDT

Rep. Roscoe Bartlett, R-Md., has been fined $5,000 by the Federal Election Commission (FEC) for filing incomplete and inaccurate campaign finance reports.
 
According to the Baltimore Sun, Bartlett who is expected to face a tough re-election fight this fall, received 25 letters from the FEC since 2009 warning him about the violations — more than any other member of the House.

In March, he finally agreed to a $5,000 settlement with the agency for what the Sun reported was “excessive and/or prohibited contributions, mathematical discrepancies, missing schedules, and inadequate contributor information.”

“All this is old stuff,” Bartlett told the Sun on Sunday. “We had a lot of stuff to get straightened out from the past and we’re doing that. When we learned there were problems with it, we dealt with it. And there was no intentional wrongdoing. We’re not trying to hide anything.”

The newspaper said Bartlett had struggled for more than 10 years to straighten out his campaign account, an issue that could pose a problem in his newly redrawn congressional district that political observers say now leans more Democratic than Republican.
