According to the state Election Law Enforcement Commission (ELEC), Mason allegedly failed to report expenditures related to in-kind contributions worth thousands of dollars by the state deadline. In all, ELEC alleged that Mason’s campaign failed to report a total of $126,199 on time, with the information submitted anywhere between 98 and 276 days late.
The amounts should have been reported on reports that were due beginning in October 2011 and April 2012, but were not revealed first until July 2012.
Mason, a staunch opponent of Mayor Dawn Zimmer, is one of the top Democratic political donors in the state. A spokesman for Mason did not immediately respond to a request for comment. – Dean DeChiaro
