  •  So if they don't file a pre-primary report (0+ / 0-)

    does that mean they raised below a certain amount?

      It means they suck and aren't a serious campaign. If you have an active account, you have to file even if you raise $0. But some low-rent campaigns fuck up, possibly don't even know that they have to file a pre-primary report. Joe the Plumber and Heather McTeer both filed late, and "Joe" only did so after the FEC sent him a letter telling him he'd be fined. (His cmte is called "Joe for Congress" if you want to look him up.)

        I was considering taking a class with Ray Lodato next quarter, but if he's not serious enough to file a pre-primary report, that calls his teaching abilities into question ;)

          Filed his first and only finance report (his 4Q year-end report) non-electronically, which is more than ridiculous in this day and age. Here it is, in PDF form. He also raised just $3K. Then he failed to file a pre-primary report altogether. That's about as un-serious as you can get in my book. Sorry. :(

            then I guess I'll have to be sad when Bobby Rush absolutely stomps him, then. Lodato probably won't even come in second - I'm guessing whichever one of the Some Dudes got the Tribune endorsement will.

            I think I'll try to get into his class and under the "prof's weaknesses" section of course evals I'll write "raised barely any money and didn't even file a pre-primary report."
