RALEIGH – The Civitas Institute has called on the State Board of Elections (SBOE) to investigate the campaign reporting practices of the North Carolina Clean Energy Business Alliance (NCCEBA) PAC.
“Our study of the campaign reports of the Alliance’s PAC found a disturbing pattern of discrepancies, errors, evasions, mistakes, questionable changes, missing information, the failure to file complete and timely reports, and apparent efforts to conceal or obscure spending and contributions,” said Civitas President Francis De Luca.
Civitas’ letter to SBOE Chair Joshua Howard asked the board to thoroughly investigate a pattern of disturbing reporting practices by the NCCEBA. “We cited some of these flawed reports in our letter to the board,” De Luca said. “But we have found other mistakes and problems in the PAC’s reports, and we suspect that’s just the tip of the iceberg. The SBOE needs to promptly and vigorously probe what’s really going on at the NCCEBA PAC.”
