Trudy Wade Campaign Report Second Quarter 2010





North Carolina Senate Candidate for District 28 Dr. Trudy Wade has turned in her  second quarter campaign reports for 2010. Let me start out by saying that everything in this post is legal for what the Trudy Wade Campaign has turned into the State Board of Elections BUT to the candidate who should believe in transparency in local government you can see that  below the fold aggregated contributions from individuals a total of 140  who gave $50 in cash, plus 8 who gave $50 check plus a few $25 and $30 as well which is around 25% of all her campaign contributions where you will not see who gave to her campaign.. Here is what North Carolina law states in:

163-278.11

a1) Threshold for Reporting Identity of Contributor. – A treasurer shall not be required to report the name, address, or principal occupation of any individual who contributes fifty dollars ($50.00) or less to the treasurer's committee during an election as defined in G.S. 163‑278.13. The State Board of Elections shall provide on its reporting forms for the reporting of contributions below that threshold. On those reporting forms, the State Board may require date and amount of contributions below the threshold, but may treat differently for reporting purposes contributions below the threshold that are made in different modes and in different settings.




then we have this North Carolina General Statute

§ 163‑278.14. No contributions in names of others; no anonymous contributions; contributions in excess of fifty dollars; no contribution without specific designation of contributor.



(a) No individual, political committee, or other entity shall make any contribution anonymously or in the name of another. No candidate, political committee, referendum committee, political party, or treasurer shall knowingly accept any contribution made by any individual or person in the name of another individual or person or made anonymously. If a candidate, political committee, referendum committee, political party, or treasurer receives anonymous contributions or contributions determined to have been made in the name of another, he shall pay the money over to the Board, by check, and all such moneys received by the Board shall be deposited in the Civil Penalty and Forfeiture Fund of the State of North Carolina.

(b) No entity shall make, and no candidate, committee or treasurer shall accept, any monetary contribution in excess of fifty dollars ($50.00) unless such contribution is in the form of a check, draft, money order, credit card charge, debit, or other noncash method that can be subject to written verification. No contribution in the form of check, draft, money order, credit card charge, debits, or other noncash method may be made or accepted unless it contains a specific designation of the intended contributee chosen by the contributor. The State Board of Elections may prescribe guidelines as to the reporting and verification of any method of contribution payment allowed under this Article. For contributions by money order, the State Board shall prescribe methods to ensure an audit trail for every contribution so that the identity of the contributor can be determined. For a contribution made by credit card, the credit card account number of a contributor is not a public record.
(c) No political committee or referendum committee shall make any contribution unless in doing so it reports to the recipient the contributor's name as required in G.S 163‑278.7(b)(1). (1973, c. 1272, s. 1; 1979, c. 1073, s. 19; 1987, c. 113, s. 2; 1999‑453, s. 4(a); 2001‑319, s. 10(a); 2002‑159, s. 55(k); 2004‑125, s. 5(b); 2005‑430, s. 1; 2006‑195, ss. 1, 5.2; 2007‑484, s. 23.)


We have seen where other North Carolina Senators like Don Vaughan from Greensboro  who has turned in his second quarter campaign returns for 2010 CLICKHERE , which shows  $0 aggregated contributions from individuals because he gets all the information from all of his contributors for all to see. This is called transparency in local government .Senator Don Vaughan has spoken out on this issue on 8-2-2010 at his senate facebook group where he said this ,

"Transparency, honesty and integrity are the cornerstone of my campaign and public service. I was the only Guilford County legislator to receive the "Sunshine Award" for excellence in campaign reporting. I believe we should continue to strengthen reporting requirements, such as doing away with the $1000 threshold and ...reporting all contributions no matter what the amount."


As you can see from his returns he does get the sunshine award and  hopefully when Dr. Trudy Wade gets elected to the North Carolina Senate she will be the first senator to sign onto a bill co signed by another  Guilford County Senator in Don Vaughan on reporting of all campaign contributions to everyone's campaign because as we have seen above and also with the below the fold look at Dr. Wades campaign returns it sure does not look good to see all of those aggregated contributions going to the complete edge of reporting of $50 with no reports in her returns. Time to shine some Sunlight on the Trudy Wade Campaign, let's see if her next returns will have the aggregated  contributions under $50 with the names of her contributors because she has another campaign rally coming up in September.

UPDATE:

FEC over at Vie de Malchance CLICKHERE had this to say in a post "Unfortunately, more and more political info is showing up online and we really can’t concentrate on it all. Right now, there’s a campaign finance report for Trudy Wade at the NCBOE with a whole bunch of $50 anonymous donations, reminiscent of Jim Black. The problem is there are too many pols to be watched and only so many of us."

Great post.

thanks FEC, i remembered this morning that you also said something as well. I could have added does Dr. Wade want to be like Jim Black or like Mr. Sunshine and Senator Don Vaughan take your pick. We will see if she wants to keep up with no reporting but as we have seen it can be done just because the law states you don't have to, you can still report it to the board of elections take your pick.

If her treasurer does it again then it will be posted again for all to see.

Burckley's driving that bus. It will be interesting to see how much support Gladys Robinson gets.

BTW, George gave me the Jim Black allusion. I only steal from the best.
