Another day, another mea culpa from the NCGOP treasurer


He’s struggled with keeping the finances for the Harnett County GOP and the Second Congressional District.  Yet, someone thought it was a great idea to put Jason Lemons in charge of the money at NCGOP HQ in Raleigh.  We’ve documented here and here and here some of the issues he’s had with number-crunching.


Now, it appears he’s graduated to having issues with the Federal Elections Commission:

Ms. Maureen Benitz

Senior Campaign Finance Analyst

Federal Election Commission

999 E Street NW

Washington, DC 20463

Identification Number: C00038505

Reference: 30 Day Post-General Report (10/18/2018-11/26/2018)


Dear Ms. Benitz:


The following is a response to the request in your letter dated April 18, 2019:

1. The North Carolina Republican Party(C0038505) was designated to make coordinated

expenditures by the RNC and therefore the coordinated amount spent stayed under the

combined coordinated expenditure limit of $99,400.00 in the 2018 general election. The

expenditures in question were incorrectly reported on Schedule B and an amended report

will be filed to correct these expenditures to be itemized on Schedule F.

Please let me know if you have any other questions.




Jason Lemons



I wonder if the Central Committee gave him a contract, too?
