Anna Lee and Tom Whitmore File FEC Complaint

By Greg L | 10 April 2012 | RPV, Loudoun County, Prince William County | 53 Comments

Breaking…

I have heard that Anna Lee and Tom Whitmore filed a complaint with the Federal Elections Commission claiming financial irregularities by 10th District Chairman Howie Lind and Treasurer Shak Hill yesterday.  I have not seen the complaint, nor is it available on the FEC website.  Too Conservative has posted about questions involving 10th District finances in the past, and I expect the complaint has something to do with those.

While it is hardly surprising to see this sort of behavior from Anna Lee and the JoAnn Chase crowd, I am rather surprised that Tom Whitmore became a part of this.  When Republicans running for party office resort to filing complaints with the FEC instead of seeking resolution to their concerns in-house, in my view it raises some very grave concerns about their fitness.

Stay tuned for updates.

UPDATE 1:  Howie has responded with this in an email to Committee members:

As you may already know, on April 2, Tom Whitmore – with Anna Lee’s signature as witness – submitted an official complaint with the Federal Election Commission against the 10th Congressional District Republican Committee for alleged election code violations relating to incomplete disclosures.

This complaint has one clear and simple purpose:  to intimidate and discredit the entire 10th District Committee.  However, I can assure you that this filing is frivolous and without merit, and will not stand.

Here are the facts:

1. The 10th District Committee leadership and financial team have been open and responsive over recent months in dealing with a series of requests from members for financial records.

Over the last several months, I have received threatening emails from the above individuals and a few others requesting two sets of financial records:  the Committee’s bank records and the rental agreement for our Victory Office in Leesburg.  I sent the rental agreement in an April 1 email to the entire Committee.  Separately, the Committee’s treasurer, Shak Hill, sent spreadsheets that he created from the bank records in a more readable format than the monthly postings we receive.  There was and is nothing to hide in these bank records.  All of the information from them is contained in the spreadsheets.

In addition to these communications, I have been keeping the entire Committee apprised of the contents of these records, including an oral presentation at the Committee meeting on February 7.

In my 10th District update email on March 7, I also stated that we were in the process of amending FEC reports for 2011 as a result of the untimely death last summer of our prior Treasurer, Charles Proctor, and the replacement in January of the individual responsible for our FEC filings.  On April 1, I informed all Committee members by email that the amended reports had been filed.

2. All required FEC reports, including financial disbursements, have been posted on the FEC site in a timely manner, and 10th District Committee members have also been apprised of that fact.

On March 30, the person responsible for our filings posted amended federal reports, including the full range of disbursements, on the FEC online site using new FEC software.  These reports were complete and correctly filled out.  However, because of his unfamiliarity with the software, the filer did not activate a specific setting to display all disbursements.

As mentioned above, on April 1, I informed all members of the 10th District Committee that the reports had been posted, in keeping with my policy and practice keeping you apprised of all financial and other activities.  Since the oversight in activating the setting was brought to our attention, the setting is being corrected and the disbursements will be displayed properly.  We will respond expeditiously to the FEC complaint, and we expect this matter to be closed out without any finding of violation or penalty to the Committee.

3. Mr. Whitmore and Ms. Lee chose to file the complaint without checking with the leadership team as to its substance or merit, and in direct contradiction to the best interests of the 10th District Committee, its members, and the Republican Party.

Despite my assurances in my April 1 correspondence that all financial information had been filed, Mr. Whitmore and Ms. Lee chose to file a complaint to the FEC — the very next day — claiming that not all of our disbursements had been included in our reports –  literally making a federal case out of a software glitch.  They filed this complaint without contacting me for an explanation or, in the best interests of the Committee, working with us to ensure that all appropriate information was included.

Mr. Whitmore and Ms. Lee took this action knowing that the very fact of an FEC complaint will serve to discredit the Committee and its leadership in the eyes of Party members and the public, that past internecine warfare of this nature has badly hurt our electoral prospects, and that actions of this nature could expose the entire Committee membership to legal liability.

Mr. Whitmore’s and Ms. Lee’s behavior hardly represents the kind of constructive, cooperative, unified approach that has contributed to our recent string of electoral success and that one would expect from individuals holding themselves out as candidates for Party leadership.

I want to reassure you, again, that this filing is frivolous and without merit, and that I will personally take the lead in responding and resolving the matter with the FEC.  And equally important, I have no intention of letting this trivial and small-minded action distract us from the truly critical business before the Committee:

1.  Handing a unified Party over to my successor.

2.  Doing our part to evict the current occupant from 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

3.  Reclaiming Virginia’s U.S. Senate seat for the Republican Party; and

3.  Ensuring Frank Wolf yet another overwhelming re-election victory in the 10th Congressional District.

    There are real issues there, what should people do, ignore it? And are you not an official contractor for the 10th CD hired by Howie Lind? Are irregularities OK because it’s Howie? Maybe you should disclose your financial relationship in this post.

    How many other party Chairs buy gas out of their committee accounts? Isn’t mileage a more appropriate way to track expenses if they are approved? Just about every political party leader I have ever known never put in for mileage expenses. You are expected to sacrifice in these positions. But hey, what do you expect when you pick a big government lobbyist as the head of a political organization? Wake up.

    My concern is that these issues may have been raised with RPV and Anna Lee didn’t get the answer she wanted to hear, so going to the Obama Administration for satisfaction was the only alternative she could come up with. I sure hope she didn’t go to them as her first resort, as that would be crazy.

    That said, we don’t know at this point what the complaint alleges, what has happened with these concerns in the past, and what the disposition of this complaint will be. It’s a little early to declare anyone guilty of wrongdoing. To me this raises concerns, but doesn’t signify guilt on anyone’s part.

    Would someone please ask Tom if he spoke to Howie personally before he followed the sage advice of JoAnn and Ann Lee and filed his specious complaint?
    And while you are at it, ask him about the strange case of the disappearing endorsements on his website. Names like Howie Lind, John Stirrup, Donna Holt and Yale and Nancy Schiffman, just to name a few.
    Are these the actions and character traits of someone we want to serve as a leader in the Republican Party?

    I had intended to vote for Tom Whitmore at the convention for SCC. He’s a solid conservative with some good ideas. But now that he has aligned himself with Anna Lee, AND against Howie Lind in this action, it puts Tom into the ‘nutcase’ category. He will not get my vote at the convention.

    I do not care if Howie charges his gas at Exxon, or submits mileage reports. Looking at Howie’s expenses, there was nothing out of the ordinary. It’s a non issue. The man is constantly traveling around a huge district and to Richmond. I have NO problem with the party paying for gas in his car for all those trips whether at Exxon or Sunoco or 7-11. There are no undue expenses on Howie’s reports. I am assuming that Anna and Tom had larger concerns, but even larger issues should have been handled internally within the party. If this report is accurate, Anna and Tom are being petty and small and are not people who I want running my party in any capacity.

    Let’s face it, we all know that Anna Lee has disliked Howie for years. She spread absurd lies about him when he ran for chair and apparently she’s continued that behavior. I supported Howie’s opponent, but Howie has proven to be an excellent chair. He has been a fair and unbiased leader who has done far more for the 10th district than our previous leader, someone who we rarely saw. Howie’s been everywhere, attending every meeting, and helping every candidate in the 10th district. He’s been a tireless leader who has gained the respect of all of us. Well, apparently all but Anna Lee. It’s very disappointing to see Tom Whitmore join her in this silly vendetta against Howie. This drives a stake through the hearts of their convention campaigns and any chance of future campaigns. It’s not what anyone would expect from two people with so much political experience.
    They’re very ill conceived action only hurts the two of them. How sad for two people who have given so much to our party to end their time in politics in this manner.

    Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned and about to lose another political campaign!

    Big Fan of Frank Wolf? I once counted myself among those, but like many Congressmen a funny thing happened on his journey as a representative of the people, he confused himself and his own interests with those of his constituents.

    I don’t know what the deal with Lind is, but I sure hope it is more than just a dispute about billing for gas.

    It is indeed unfortunate that Tom has been dragged into the depths of the Lee depravity. Both are previously good people….but they’ve grown desperate in their intention for more.
    Now, they’ve invented charges and circumstances that they think will favor them…and seeing no action where they wanted it…they chose to escalate the foolishness.

    I have held Tom in high regard in the past…even signing on with him at the Mass Meeting, and he was instramental in the creation of the RPVNET site with OP Ditch.
    It is unfortunate that he has hitched to Anna Lee’s failed efforts, and I hereby withdraw my support, Tom. Please reconsider your previous effectiveness, friend.

    We have long been aware that Anna Lee is feeding Loudoun Insider her imagined outrages over Howie Lind. As we all know, she’s been telling lies about Howie for many years. She has been unable to gain any traction with the absurdities that she has peddled. Now it appears that she has found two allies, Jo-Ann Chase and Loudoun Insider. Those alliances do NOT lend any credence to her latest round of foolish accusations.

    I have looked through all the of the 10th district filings over the last year and can find no irregularities. Perhaps Anna Lee has some “inside” information, as she has often claimed, but were never founded. Anna having any inside information is almost unlikely as Loudoun Insider having inside information. But they are the perfect pair in many ways. Add Jo-Ann to their unique mix of ego driven craziness, and we have a trifecta of insanity, lies, and distortions of the truth.

    I am very sorry to see that Tom has chosen to align himself with this bunch of over reactionaries and liars. I expected more of Tom.

    Just found out that Anna Lee only notarized the letter, she was not a signatory to it. The letter was from Tom.

    As someone who practices campaign finance law, after an FEC complaint is filed, only the target of the complaint can speak about it, not the FEC or those filing the complaint. From what I have heard, Howie sent out an email on Thu. about this. Otherwise, this complaint would have remained confidential and information on this would only have become public once the FEC issued a ruling.

    Well, since Howie’s contractor started this whole thing I guess I’ll post up those Howie and Whitmore emails later.

    And Riley has it right, Anna Lee notarized the complaint, Whitmore signed it. At least Whitmore cares about financial transparency and honest accounting. Lind and his bitter hack supporters could care less about those things as long as they are in power. So much for local Republicans being the party of law and order and moral governance.

    Howie’s letter to the 10th district is here, http://virginiavirtucon.wordpress.com/2012/04/11/howie-linds-comments-on-fec-filing/

    Some folks might want to scroll down the FEC page, back to Jim Rich’s tenure as Chairman of the 10th. http://images.nictusa.com/cgi-bin/fecimg/?C00005462

    Many, many, times the 10th district simply failed to file reports at all. I count at least 22 incidents (I may have missed a few) of “notice of failure to file” and many, many more, “requests for additional information, in the years prior to Howie’s tenure as chair. How could they have failed to file over and over and over again? Under Howie the FEC never had to send a notice of failure to file and only a handful of requests for additional information.

    Loudoun Insider is right, (how novel is that?!) there is much more to come, but it’s not about Howie Lind or his tenure as chair. Anna and Tom may well regret opening their little can of worms with the FEC. It may not reflect well on those they hold near and dear, to say nothing of having just ended their political careers.

    I am very confident that John Whitbeck will serve us well and there will fewer amendments necessary to financial reports. It looks like we had a treasurer who for a few months was not up to her job and several amendments to reports were necessary. Shak Hill, the new treasurer is more competent in his job. If he proves not to be able to do the job, I have no doubts at all that John Whitbeck will find someone who is. John will do what Howie has done for the party, unify us, organize us, help with fundraising for ALL of our republican candidates, show up often and everywhere for our candidates, and lead us to victories like the ones we’ve enjoyed under Howie’s tenure. How sweet it was in November to elect ALL republicans to the board of supervisors in Loudoun, ALL republican delegates, and ALL but one state senator. Thanks Howie! John Whitbeck has big shoes to fill, but we have full confidence in him with your expert guidance. With John’s help this year we will re-elect Frank Wolf, take back our Senate seat, and boot Obama from the White House! Anna and Tom will find new hobbies, away from the republican party, just as Loudoun Insider has done.

    You are so right, LI, this should have been questioned during Jim Rich’s tenure. How did the 10th district allow him to not even file reports for many, many, months? Why did the FEC have to send so many letters to the 10th district for their failure to file? It’s a disgrace that should have been dealt with, rather than allowing Rich to do this year after year. I have to wonder if he was ever fined for failing to report? How odd that Anna never cared about Jim Rich not even bothering to file, but now cares that Howie spent $42 for a tank of gas. Hell hath no fury and all that.

    Gotta give Anna credit for finally finding someone else to file her complaint with the FEC while she is ”only the notary”. I don’t suppose Tom could find any other notary, in all of PWC, so he had to take HIS FEC letter all the way over to Fairfax for Anna to notarize. It couldn’t be that the the letter was actually written by her for him to sign. Naw, I’m sure that’s not the case. Tom did it all on his own, she wasn’t involved. There just aren’t any notaries closer to his house, so he had to travel from Manassas to Fairfax for Anna to notarize HIS letter. She was ”only the notary”. Yeah, that’s the ticket. That’s not even almost believable.

    LI, you crack me up, you really do! Your moral indignation is hilarious! You, the strong moral one! hahaha…….. I’m so glad that you are no longer a republican but happy that you are still around for comic relief! You never fail to amuse.

    How about a few more fact-filled doozies, there, LI…. Seems that Anna Lee and Tom Whitmore (unfortunate, after his seemingly bright future in PWC) …. have a) brought more scrutiny on her filings under Rich, which are MUCH MORE QUESTIONABLE… b) are actually undermining the effectiveness of the Tenth District right in front of an election year (wrapped it up for dems with a big bow)…and c) will readily put personal politics ahead of any other effort by a great many activists who they’ve just thrown under the proverbial bus.

    The more I see, the more multiple phone calls I recieve over this matter…. this wreaks of personal entitlement…damn the collateral damage to the Party.

    Tom, you’ve got a Mass Meeting and a whole lot more to concentrate on…so one has to wonder what kind of photos they had. You’ve probably allowed Lee and Chase to toss half of your support under a bus.
    This ain’t how you rally the troops in an election year. You’re helping air dirty laundry (that really doesn’t even exists by Jim Rich standards) in front of voters in one of the highest profile elections of our time.

    Let me respond to the 10th District FEC complaint issue. It was a confidential complaint; done in the spirit of self reporting, to protect the party and the Congressman from embarrassment down the road. There were issues that needed to be dealt with now, and put to rest. This would also ensure we could negotiate with the FEC to reduce any penalties and fines. There were 6, 10th district committee members, that were pressing hard for the financials so we could bring this to a close now, rather than just before the election. We could have called for a special meeting, but decided to keep the matter confidential.

    Here are the facts; the FEC is treating this as a friendly committee complaint. The new 10th District treasurer filed the last 6 consecutive monthly reports of 2011 with the FEC, however those filings only reported the donations received. Nearly $40,000.00 of expenses had not been reported to the FEC. After many committee members pressed repeatedly for the finances to be disclosed, the treasurer submitted 20 (twenty) amended monthly reports to the FEC over a couple of days, but still did not share the bank statements or treasurer’s reports with the committee members. There was great concern about other violations that might come out, as a result of the FEC investigating the amended filings because the 10th District committee had been fined previously in this cycle. Some of the unreported expenses were very unusual. This would appear to be true for the SBE filings as well. We had hoped to keep this low key because so many of the expenses were not typical for district committees. For example: mileage, had it been approved would be one thing, but $891.84 in gasoline and tolls for a personal vehicle in one year? Additionally, there was an unapproved and unbudgeted payment of $200.00 to a bartender at an evening fundraiser last July for a candidate who had not reported the in-kind donation. Our concern was that this was just the tip of the iceberg, and some bloggers had already been sniffing around.

    Again, this needed to be dealt with now. It could not be left to drag out for months and be used as fodder by others. With the FEC normal cycle it would have been 120 to 180 days. Who better than the Republicans to do their own housecleaning?

    Again, it was done confidentially. Indeed, in complaint letters that the FEC sends out, the Respondents (committees) have to make a choice to either maintain confidentiality or to go public.

    I did not make it public or embarrass the party. Someone else decided to take it viral and tell the world, in an attempt to use it as a political bludgeon. He alone brought whatever additional embarrassment comes to the party. What was done was done, and the facts could not be changed. The violations had occurred and were now evident. I notified the congressman, the RPV counsel and my unit chairman about the complaint and did not get a single negative reaction.

    It is interesting to note that the treasurer, who is named in the complaint, has also remained quiet and respected the confidential nature of this issue.
    Before filing the complaint I discussed the prospect with many leaders to make sure this was the right thing to do. I understood that there might be some who would try to turn this against me and the others, but to what end? Why would they break the confidentiality and risk embarrassment to the party? I had to stand my ground and do what was right. I could not sacrifice the thousands of hours that I have devoted to doing the right thing, to promoting the party and growing the brand, by shrinking from my responsibility, just because I was running for party office. I could not give up even an iota of integrity over the worry that standing up for the right thing might be turned against me.
    The important thing to remember is that, it was a confidential matter and only good could come from it, for the 10th District committee and the party, had it remained so.

    Question for Mr. Tom Whitmore: How could Mr Lind keep this “confidential” when he has a fiduciary responsibility to tell the members of the 10th District SCC there has been a “friendly” (come on, THAT is silly!) FEC violation report filed, when they are in effect the Board of the 10th District?

    I simply do not believe this was a preventive measure, particularly with Anna Lee and JoAnn Chase involved.

    Mr Tom, If you had done this on your own, with no involvement from these two women, you might have a case. Unfortunately you showed your hand the minute you teamed up with the drama queens. Shame on all of you for feeding this information to bloggers that are enemies of this party. Shame.

    You will have to take your lumps on this, that is sad, but when you play with skunks you will stink.

    Just to make sure there’s clarity here, Tom Whitmore DID NOT leak the story about the complaint, and neither did Howie Lind. While I do not as a policy reveal information about any sources ever, my source for this is entirely outside of the control of ether of these two individuals. Do not think that either of them tried to leak information about this for political advantage in some way. Neither of them were responsible.

    What a group of losers whining to the Obama administration because they have lost or are about to lose elections. Anna Lee is on her way to getting trounced at the 10th District Convention. Jo-Ann Chase is getting revenge because she lost last year. Tom Whitmore and Pat Jackson don’t need to hire a psychic to know that they are about to lose their bids for unit chairman in PW and Winchester. So they all get together and conspire a plot to file a bogus complaint to deflect attention from their pitiful circumstances.

    Well said “Just Saying”. Because the enemy of my enemy is my friend, particularly in politics, we have seen some strange bedfellows develop over the last few months. Who would have ever predicted that Anna Lee would join forces with her long time sworn enemy Jo-Ann Chase, and then with no-love-lost Tea Partier Tom Whitmore, adding to the mix the local republican hating blogger, Loudoun Insider, whose name has become an oxymoron? I can’t help but giggle every time I think of that strange group being bestest buddies, and all because Howie Lind has been a great leader of the 10th district to their chagrin. Politics may be unpredictable, but it’s always entertaining!

    I have never met or talked to or corresponded with Tom Whitmore in any way, but he has been vouched for by people much better than you, “Lady”. He wants to see this committee comply with the law, you tools want to keep making excuses. The ballistic bullshit started with this blog and your ridiculous rant, both of which were wrong about Anna Lee filing a complaint, which she did not do. You remain a bitter nasty old woman.

    When did ever say that you had spoken with Tom?

    Oh right, Anna didn’t file the complaint. No sir she didn’t. She “only notarized” it for her bff Tom Whitmore, because the poor man lives in a county without a notary! So he drove all the way over to Fairfax so that his friend Anna could ”only notarize” the letter to the FEC. Thank goodness Fairfax county has notaries! We’re lucky in Loudoun in that we seem to have notaries everywhere, including all of the local banks.

    Nope Outsider, I am not the least bit ballistic or bitter. Why would I be? I couldn’t be any better or having more fun. It’s all just fun stuff!

    You seem to have a bit of a problem separating your feelings and actions from those of others. When you are angry and bitter, and going ballistic, you accuse everyone else of behaving that way and feeling that way. It’s bizarre. I’ve never seen anyone with such a case of projection. It’s a defense mechanism that doesn’t work well long term. You might want to read over what you’ve written here yesterday and today, and elsewhere, and try to come to get in touch with your own feelings. Try to see who sounds bitter, nasty, and ballistic. Try to read and accept your own feelings. There’s nothing wrong about feeling those things, or feeling whatever else you feel. But Continuing to project those feelings onto others will not help you. I know it can help reduce your anxiety temporarily, but it is not a healthy, viable, coping mechanism. Please try to do some reading about it, and/or try to get some help for it. It’s not good for you.

    Sincerely,

    Your rabid little attack piggie.
    AKA Your Pathetic Piggie

    Try to have some fun this weekend Inside-Outsider!

    Once again she misses the point entirely - she and Greg started this fiasco by leaping to attack Anna lee for notarizing a well founded factual complaint from Tom Whitmore.

    You are a pig.

    I have fun every weekend.

    Stay classy, jackass. Once you arrive, the discussion immediately goes into the porta-john…..whatever it was before you arrived.
    Glad you know so much about everything that you’ve had to overlook your obvious misogynistic reflexes to reach out in an effort to buy your clues from your former victims.

    The discussion went into the crapper when idiots couldn’t even get the filer of the complaint correct.

    Maybe junior high is too high a maturity level, I guess elementary school is more appropriate.

    I was just having fun with the boy, but you’re right, it’s entertainment value has dried up, and we do have more interesting fish to fry!

    I tend to forget that humor doesn’t always come across well on the internet. Many of my responses above were kidding around, but that’s not always obvious on the internet, and some people have no sense of humor, as evidenced in several instances above. I like to have fun, not everyone in cyber space does. If politics and blogging aren’t fun, why bother? If it’s making you nothing but angry and nasty, get a new hobby! Angry and bitter doesn’t wear well on anyone.

    “Maybe junior high is too high a maturity level”.

    It certainly appears to be unobtainable to you. Everytime the discussion devolves, it’s after one of your childish interjections.
