Formal Complaint To Be Filed Against Zimmerman Prosecutor, Angela Corey

Via Legal Insurrection

A source has confirmed that a formal complaint for possible financial irregularities pursuant to Angela's Corey's 2008 campaign has been initiated and will be filed against the Zimmerman prosecutor and State Attorney.

Yesterday, the website Gawker asked if Corey had sanitized her financial disclosures for her 2008 bid. The report was based upon the work of Joe Culligan's website Web of Deception. Culligan is a long-known and trusted source.

I've confirmed that, when approached for disclosure of financial documents regarding Corey's campaign, her campaign Treasurer, Marshall Gunn's response appears to indicate the campaign is not in possession of said records. The request was regarding copies of disbursement checks payable to Corey's campaign manager, Brandon Patty, and any accompanying 1099's issued as a result. Form 1099s are issued to report the paying of wages, tips and various types of income beyond that of a standard full-time employee.

While the 1099 issue may seem arcane, a failure to Nancy Killefer withdrew her nomination as Obama's Chief Performance Officer and U.S. district court Judge Kimba Wood of New York, withdrew from consideration as Bill Clinton's attorney general over similar issues. The IRS tends to take the matter seriously. As for any campaign record retention, as confirmed by the Florida's Division of Elections, that is covered under Florida Statute 106.06.
