Party indebtedness an issue

The Post reports that the Republican National Committee recently amened some of its campaign finance reports to disclose debts owed by the committee.

“Failure to disclose debt is a common violation, but the FEC is likely to take this very seriously,” said Brett Kappel, a campaign finance lawyer with Arent Fox who has worked for candidates from both parties. “A failure to report a debt of that magnitude doesn’t let the public or the candidates or the opposing party know the true financial state of the committee.”
