FEC MEETING.   The agenda for today’s open meeting is online.

RAVEL ADMISSION.   WE.  “A former Democratic chair of the Federal Election Commission who repeatedly rejected charges she was targeting Republicans and conservative websites like the Drudge Report has admitted that the agency has an anti-GOP bias.”

CA:  MEUSER WIN.  My friend Mark Meuser is moving on in California’s Secretary of State race.  I’ve had the opportunity to work with him and look forward to a hard-fought campaign.

HI:  FACING QUESTIONS.   CB.  “State Rep. Kaniela Ing has a numbers problem, and it’s not just because he’s trailing in the polls in the race for Hawaii’s 1st Congressional District.”

MO:  REPRESENTATION ISSUE.  HAN.  “The Kentucky lawyer who represented Gov. Eric Greitens and his campaign in the Missouri Ethics Commission complaint over a charity donor list never paid the fees necessary to legally practice law in Missouri.”

NH:  AMPING UP ENFORCEMENT.   NHBR.  “For the first time, the unit will be ‘implementing a systemic examination of the financial disclosure statements filed by every candidate and political committee during the 2018 primary and general election campaign to ensure that the report is timely and in compliance with the minimum disclosure requirements.’ The attorney general’s office also promises ‘randomized audits of financial disclosures.'”

WA:  TECH COMPANIES SUED.   FOR.  “The state of Washington is suing Facebook and Google over allegations that the two companies violated campaign finance laws.  Washington attorney general Bob Ferguson announced that his office filed two lawsuits this week against the two tech giants, alleging they failed to maintain records on entities that have purchased political ads on their platforms, violating state campaign finance laws.”
