ELEC’s Opinion

The New Jersey Election Law Enforcement Commission ruled today that candidates failing to meet the threshold in the clean elections pilot project could return checks given to them, but that data disclosing those contributions recieved will have to be provided to study the problems with the project. This may cause some trouble for Democrats William Flynn and Michael Dasaro, who have returned checks they collected months ago, even though they were not authorized to return checks as a result of today’s advisory opinion ELEC did not figure out how to retrieve contributions given electronically that were automatically deposited in the State Treasury.
