LOL: Egg McMuffin Getting Letters from the FEC Telling Him He's in Violation of Law

"Sacred honor." "Eternal truths." LOL.

Former presidential candidate Evan McMullin’s failed campaign ended its quixotic journey six-figures in debt as of summer 2017, and records show it has missed every deadline to file the required financial statements since then, according to a review by The Daily Caller News Foundation.

The Federal Election Commission (FEC) sent numerous letters to the McMullin For President Committee over the last year warning that the organization risks fines for failing to file and for making errors on financial statements it did manage to submit.

McMullin’s committee was nearly $645,000 in debt just after the 2016 presidential election, according to a financial statement the group filed to the FEC in December 2016. By July 2017, it increased to nearly $670,000, that month’s filing shows.

That was the last financial statement McMullin's committee filed. Since then, the organization has missed three deadlines, including one that passed Sunday. The FEC has consequently sent the group warnings that it could face penalties if it doesn't provide the necessary information.


"It has come to the attention of the Federal Election Commission that you may have failed to file the above referenced report of receipts and disbursements or failed to file a report covering the entire reporting period as required by the Federal Election Campaign Act," reads a February letter from the FEC.

"The failure to timely file this report may result in civil money penalties, suspension of matching funds payments, an audit or legal enforcement action," the letter continues. "The civil money penalty calculation for late reports does not include a grace period and begins on the day following the due date for the report."

Let me put on my speculation cap:

This was leaked to the Daily Caller by some people who got stiffed by McMullin and who want to pressure him to pay them. Who? Well, he has a short list of vendors. Shouldn't be hard to narrow it down to a couple.

Just speculatin'.
