Republican conspiracy theorist Cindy Ficklin has already been delinquent in filing her first campaign finance disclosure, incurring a $200 fine.
Ficklin announced October 18 that she was running for Colorado House District 55 in retribution against the “leftist progressive liberals” at the school district who dared not appoint her to the open School Board seat left by Paul Pitton’s retirement.
Colorado law gives candidates 10 days after filing notice they are running for office to submit a Personal Financial Disclosure to the state.
On October 27, the day before it was due, the state sent Ficklin a courtesy reminder about the deadline to file the disclosure.
But the October 28 deadline to file it came and went without Ficklin filing anything.
The state fines candidates $50 a day for every day past the deadline they fail to supply this legally-required information.
On October 29, the state Elections Division fined Ficklin $50, reminding her via email that her fines would continue to accrue at $50/day until she filed the required form.
And continue they did.
Ficklin finally filed the required information on 11/1, incurring a $200 fine for filing late.
