Shelby County DA Candidate Joe Brown Fails To File Campaign Documents

(Shelby County) Former judge Joe Brown, who is running for Shelby County District Attorney, failed to file a pre-primary campaign disclosure form.

He was notified on April 15 that the form, covering April 1 through April 26, had to be filed no later than April 29.

On May 2, the Bureau of Ethics and Campaign Finance sent Brown another letter after he failed to submit the form on time.

The second letter clearly states Brown must file a report even if there was no campaign activity during the reporting period.

Failure to file within five days of receipt of the second letter means a civil penalty of $25 a day until the form is filed or for 30 days, whichever comes first.

Republican Amy Weirich will face Brown in the general election this August. Both were unopposed in the primary elections.
