Alabama GOP fails to report inkind contribution of car for 6 months
AL.com reports: The Alabama Republican Party failed for about 6 months to report the donation of an automobile that the party chairman drives, a lapse Chairman Bill Armistead said was caused by miscommunication.
Armistead said a Jasper car dealer donated use of the car, a Toyota Avalon, to the party in February as in-kind contribution. The party did not report the donation until its Aug. 20 report to the Federal Election Commission.
"It's one of those situations where things just fell through the cracks or there was a misunderstanding or miscommunication. It was an innocent mistake," said Armistead, who has been driving the vehicle on party business.
The Aug. 20 report to the FEC lists an in-kind contribution of $489 received from car dealer Scott Crump of Jasper. -- Read the whole story --> State GOP failed to report car donation for several months | al.com
