Alabama: Mobile County judge disqualified for late campaign report

The Mobile Press-Register reports: Mobile County Juvenile Judge Pamela Millsaps has been disqualified from running for re-election as the Republican Party's candidate because she missed a deadline for filing a campaign finance report before the June 6 primary, Mobile County Probate Judge Don Davis said Thursday. ...

Millsaps is the second local candidate to face disqualification over a tardy financial report. DaVon Grey, the winner of the Democratic primary for Mobile County sheriff, also turned in his report late.

The Alabama secretary of state's office received Millsaps' financial report, which listed her campaign contributions and expenses, on the day of the primary. State law says the report should be sent between five and 10 days before the election.

Millsaps signed the document and had it notarized May 30, which was the deadline for mailing the report to the secretary of state's office.

The envelope was not postmarked until June 1, and it's stamped as being received by the secretary of state's office June 6. -- Millsaps taken off ballot
