Investigation Opened Into Whether Candidate Failed to Disclose Income Sources

California officials opened an investigation into whether recall election gubernatorial candidate Larry Elder disclosed his income sources.

The recall election is set for September 14 and the Democrats are pulling out all the stops to keep Newsom in office.

GOP candidate Larry Elder made a simple mistake on one of the income disclosure documents and his campaign already fixed the error.

The Los Angeles Times reported:

California regulators have launched an investigation into whether recall election gubernatorial candidate Larry Elder failed to properly disclose his income sources, a spokesman with the Fair Political Practices Commission confirmed on Sunday.

Elder’s initial filing was only two pages long and only showed income from Laurence A. Elder and Associates Inc. A Times article earlier this month first reported that Elder likely failed to properly disclose his finances because he appeared to own the company, meaning he was also required to report ownership in the business as well as income sources to the company above certain amounts.

After the Times story, the California Democratic Party filed a complaint with the Fair Political Practices Commission alleging that Elder failed to properly disclose the business and its sources of income. Elder, a conservative radio show host, amended the document to show that Elder owned 100% of the company and that it is worth between $100,000 and $1 million. His exact wealth is difficult to determine because the state requires disclosure in broad dollar ranges.

Elder is the leading contender vying to replace Gov. Gavin Newsom in the Sept. 14 recall election. Ying Ma, an Elder campaign spokesperson, emailed The Times the following statement about the investigation: “We made a simple mistake and we fixed it as soon as possible. These investigations are very common in campaign world.”

An FPPC letter sent to an attorney for the complainant said that although the watchdog agency had opened an investigation, it had “not made any determination about the validity of the allegation(s) your client has made about the culpability, if any, of the person(s) identified in the complaint.”

Larry Elder has raised over $4 million since joining the race for California governor and the establishment is scared.

The Los Angeles Times ran a shockingly racist headline attacking Elder over the weekend.

Nothing is too low for the left.

About 1,400 people showed up to Larry Elder’s rally in Fresno, California on Sunday.
