|Tom "Numbers Cruncher" O'Donnell|
On Friday, O'Donnell filed a report, paying a $100 fine for being late. Though the County is littered with $1259.50 in signs that say they were paid for by "Citizens to Elect Tom O'Donnell," he formed no committee and filed individually. This means that every single one of his campaign signs has the wrong disclaimer.
What's more, the report he did file is inaccurate. O'Donnell, who claims his strength is his financial acumen, failed to report a $106 contribution from fellow candidate Christen Borso, which she listed on her report. He also fails to include a contribution made by an incumbent Council member, although he might have lost that check.
Because I expect to see him lose this race, I have no intention of complaining about O'Donnell's continued violation of state campaign finance laws.
O'Donnell does report that unions gave him $2,000 of the $5,615.00 he raised.
His report also indicates $250 contributions from DA John Morganelli, Lamont McClure and Att'y Jay Leeson./
