Faisal Gill has filed an amended campaign finance disclosure which increases the amount paid to Tom Kopko for “web site design” and assistance in filing campaign finance reports to $2,000 from $1,000. This is in addition to $4,000 paid to Huberspace for “web hosting”, making Faisal Gill’s campaign website one of the most expensive new media efforts this election cycle and the most expensive ever for a House of Delegates campaign. Additionally, $750 was paid on February 9th to the PWCRC for a “committee event” that I can’t find any record of having happened. That was the day after the website for Julie Lucas went live and four days after a PWCRC meeting. If there was a “committee event” that day, members of the committee weren’t invited.
As far as the smell test goes, this is failing big time. Between suspect contributions and reported expenditures that make no sense at all, Faisal Gill is looking more and more like a corrupt politician with each passing day.
UPDATE: In the comments a reader points out that the $750 payment on February 9th was to sponsor a table at the Lincoln-Reagan dinner.
