Webb to Jeffress: “Stop spreading illegal, non-compliant campaign materials to the public.”
|Gene Jeffress - Liberal |
And A Plantation Politician
Not Even Close to Outgoing
Blue Dog Rep. Mike Ross
“If Democrat Gene Jeffress can’t even follow federal campaign law, how can he seriously ask Arkansans to let him write federal law as a member of Congress?” asked Republican Party of Arkansas Chairman Doyle Webb. “This is an issue of transparency and voters deserve to know who is paying for these materials. Senator Jeffress has had four opportunities to bring his campaign into compliance with federal law. Today, we call on him to stop spreading illegal, non-compliant campaign materials to the public.”
Today’s complaint follows four public notifications made by the FEC to Gene Jeffress for being out of compliance with federal campaign finance laws and regulations.

Jeffress Has Serious Problems With FEC“State Sen. Gene Jeffress is having trouble keeping his congressional campaign in compliance with the Federal Election Commission. He has been publicly notified by them that he is out of compliance not once, not twice, not even three times, but four times. ” (Jason Tolbert, Jeffress FEC Compliance Problems Continue, The Tolbert Report, 8/13/12)
Jeffress Calls Lack of FEC Compliance “Malarkey”“Fourth District congressional candidate Gene Jeffress has not submitted his July quarterly financial report electronically, despite a warning from the Federal Election Commission nearly a month ago. Jeffress said he has received no notification from the FEC. He said he learned of the warning Tuesday when asked by a reporter. ‘They have not sent me any letters or any announcements that we’ve done anything wrong,’ he said. ‘You’re telling me something is missing. That’s just malarkey as far as I’m concerned until they let me know.’” (Sara D. Wire, “FEC warns Jeffress about finance report,” Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, 8/1/12)
