Vas’ financial disclosure still missing

If the House Ethics Committee treats Joseph Vas the same way they treated a Vermont congressional candidate, then Vas will be fined for not filing his personal financial disclosure. House rules require candidates for Congress to disclose information like their sources of income, investments and net worth “within 30 days of raising or spending $5,000 for a campaign for election to the U.S. House of Representatives, or on or before May 15 of the calendar year in which he or she becomes a candidate, whichever is later.” Vas, an Assemblyman and the Mayor of Perth Amboy, filed a congressional campaign committee last September and exceeded the $5,00 threshold almost immediately. Peter Welch, the Vermont Senate President and a Democratic candidate for the seat being vacated by Bernard Sanders, was fined $200.
