He's got ads on the radio, he's got yard signs, he's turned up at the county commission work sessions. About the only place you won't find a trace of Ed Barbeau and his campaign is with the Secretary of State's Office where Barbeau lists only a single expenditure, $450 for a booth at the Karl Rove event. Candidates have seven days after incurring an expenditure to file a report with the SOS's office.
Those who fail are subject to fines and the office has already sent a letter to Mr. Ed wondering where his reports might be, according to a staffer there who said it would be unusual for someone with a media campaign not to have some report filed a week prior to the voting deadline. So Ed, why aren't you showing us the money?
