D.C. Board of Elections and Ethics Has Been Requested To Determine The Outcome Of The Findings Of The Inspector General Regarding The Office Of The Mayor
Benjamin F. Wilson, Chairman of the D.C. Board of Elections and Ethics, today announced that the Office of the Inspector General has referred certain findings of possible fundraising violations in the office of Mayor Anthony Williams to the Board. According to the Inspector General, his office does not have the jurisdiction to determine the outcome on these matters.
"The Board's Office of Campaign Finance will review the findings specifically referred by the Inspector General on alleged improper fundraising in the Mayor's office." stated Wilson.
"However, the Board will not rubber stamp the findings of the Inspector General. Instead. the Office of Campaign Finance will evaluate the report. If necessary, the office of Campaign Finance will meet with the Inspector General and the panties charged in the report. The Board will conduct a hearing to resolve the matter, if warranted. and will draw its own conclusion on the proper means of enforcement."
"Recognizing that the citizens of the District of Columbia have been waiting for 14 months for a resolution of this matter, the Board will work with dispatch." Wilson further stated. "In November of last year, the Board adopted the recommendations of the office of Campaign Finance which were issued in a report concerning similar fundraising activities in the Office of the Mayor."
