Alabama: Senator "forgot" to file final report on PAC for 4 years

The Huntsville Times reports: Democratic State Senate candidate Jeff Enfinger has dissolved a political action committee that is at the center of a campaign finance controversy.

Enfinger sent paperwork terminating his 2006 PAC to the secretary of state's office by overnight mail Tuesday. The information was posted on the agency's website at lunchtime Wednesday.

While Enfinger says the PAC has been inactive since mid-2006, he was supposed to file a report detailing its final contributions and expenditures long before now. Conservative blogger Brian LeCompte discovered the error and filed a complaint with the Attorney General's Office alleging violations of Alabama's Fair Campaign Practices Act.

Enfinger said he forgot to fill out a termination report for the PAC after deciding not to seek re-election in 2006. -- Read the whole story (with links to the PAC reports) --> Senate candidate Jeff Enfinger dissolves PAC in campaign finance controversy | al.com
