OCF to Fenty Write-In: Cease and Desist
The Office of Campaign Finance has issued a "cease and desist" order to the rag-tag bunch of Still Mayor Adrian Fenty diehards who are running a write-in campaign (which is called, Save DC Now).
The order, issued yesterday, says that individuals associated with the Save DC Now used Fenty's primary campaign literature "in violation of the Campaign Finance Act and failed to place the disclosure notices required" on said lit. "The campaign literature was used without the authority of the Fenty 2010 Committee, and the literature was neither donated nor contributed by the Fenty 2010 Committee to the Save DC Now Committee."
OCF says the write-in folk were ordered to stop immediately (like it matters) and could face $500 fines for subsequent violations.
