Good morning, here are Tues. political law links

SENATORS FILE ON PAPER. Story here. “Candidates for the House and the presidency have been required for years to file their reports electronically, but in the Senate, e-filing is only voluntary.”

CAMPAIGN DEBT. Politico. “Obama’s primary campaign committee Obama for America remains significantly in debt to vendors, consultants and other service providers more than six months after election day.”

LD-203 REMINDER. Here. “The Honest Leadership and Open Government Act of 2007 requires active lobbying registrants and individual lobbyists to file a semi-annual report of certain contributions along with certification that the filer understands the gift and travel rules of both the House and the Senate.”

DC: CFR UPDATE. Story here. “D.C. Council member David Grosso wants to see a makeover of the city’s campaign finance system, WAMU reported.”

IL: EMANUEL FUNDRAISING. Story here. “A relentless stream of contributions is flowing into the Chicago for Rahm Emanuel fund — hundreds of 5,000 donations from individuals, dozens of 10,000 donations from companies, 10 donations from labor unions of roughly 50,000 apiece. Nearly 770 donations and 3.2 million so far, based on public records that will be updated this week with a quarterly report to the state.”

MD: REPORT AT ISSUE. The Post. “A committee that helped finance Prince George’s County Executive Rushern L. Baker’s 2010 bid for office did not report a $206,000 contribution to his campaign, according to state election records.”

PA: POLICE BAN DEFENDED. I hadn’t heard about this before: “The city of Philadelphia urged the Third Circuit on Thursday to reject a constitutional challenge to a provision of the Philadelphia Home Rule Charter banning members of the Philadelphia Police Department from making political contributions, saying the ban justifiably protects public interests.”

VT: SHUMLIN BANKS. Story here. “Gov. Peter Shumlin pulled in $87,620 in donations in 2013, padding a war chest that now stands at $706,692.”
