1989 Wilder Report: Overdue?

This story reminds me of the stories you hear now and then about people returning library books decades after they take them out.

For those wondering if Mayor L. Douglas Wilder might surprise Richmond and mount a second-term write-in campaign, any such effort would be a no-go.

It seems Wilder still hasn’t filed a final campaign finance report with the state for his 1989 gubernatorial campaign, which by law prevents him from taking office for a second term.

David Allen, campaign finance manager with the State Board of Elections, says his office has yet to receive the required report, the most recent update of which was due in July.

“Nothing’s been done,” Allen says, referring to the account as a “problem file.”
