Lt. Gov. Candidate Fined for Late Loan Disclosure

June 6, 2013

The State Board of Elections has fined Republican lieutenant governor candidate E.W. Jackson for waiting too late to disclose a $25,000 loan to his campaign.

Charlottesville lawyer Donald Lee Woodsmall gave Jackson the loan on May 8. Jackson reported it on Monday.

State law requires that candidates report contributions or loans of $5,000 or more by 5:00 PM the following day if made in the 12 days prior to a nominating event.

Jackson was chosen as the GOP lieutenant governor nominee at a May 18 convention.

The fine was first reported by The Washington Post on Thursday.

State Board of Elections spokeswoman Nikki Sheridan says the $100 fine was issued Tuesday.

It has not yet been paid.
