Jim Jordan's campaign faces questions over accounting discrepancies that exceed $100K

WASHINGTON, D.C. - The Federal Election Commission on Tuesday asked U.S. Rep. Jim Jordanís campaign committee to explain large accounting discrepancies between reports it filed several years ago and corrected reports the committee filed earlier this year. Many of the discrepancies exceeded $100,000, and one exceeded $900,000. The campaign says no money was ever missing from its accounts, and blames the inconsistencies on troubles adjusting to skyrocketing donations as Jordanís national profile grew.

Several March 2 letters from the FEC ask Jordanís campaign to explain:

* an increase in disbursements totaling $122,706.60 on its 2018 post-general election report.

* a decrease in disbursements totaling $130,319.97 on a report of the campaignís income and expenses during the final weeks of 2018.

1. The problem was "skyrocketing contributions" - really, Gym?

I wouldn't think that would be considered a problem, but would certainly get my attention and efforts to make sure everything was A-OK in the books.

Sorry, Gym. I wouldn't believe one damned thing you had to say and hope those asking questions realize they can't trust you, either. You can do better than that.

3. Maybe money irregularities will bring him down. Facilitating a sex criminal's outrages ...

... and helping to hide them doesn't seem to bother his supporters at all.

9. I begin to feel that nothing stops these people

The press is pretty happy to forget all of this as new crimes surface.

11. The press is part of the problem. The press can't decide if their job is to inform or entertain ...

Reactions to sound bites are used to determine which direction a story goes, not the facts involved.

16. Tip of the iceberg for GQP off-the-books slush funds????

Because there's money, there's banks, there's accountants, there's cash ... and then there are bookeeping entries and what happens in the real world.

Accounting prof told us that. It's never about what the ledger says. It's what's going on in reality. Your books can balance while the employees are stealing you blind with merchandise walking out of the warehouse.
