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