In this letter to the State Board of Elections, dated July 31, 2009, Bev Perdue’s campaign treasurer Oscar N. Harris refers to a letter the campaign wrote to the State Board of Elections dated January 25, 2008.
The July 2009 letter states that the January 2008 letter explains that the campaign “planned to conduct an internal review of our campaign finances after the conclusion of the 2008 general election”.
The January letter is not among the rest of the Perdue campaign finance documents found on the State Board of Elections website. I would expect that if such a letter exists the Board of Elections would have also issued a response – which also cannot be found on the Board’s website.
Did the State Board of Elections really sign off on the Bev Perdue Campaign’s plans to wait until after the 2008 election for Governor to correct ongoing inaccuracies in their campaign finance reports?
