At­tor­ney Doug Ap­pleg­ate (D) “un­suc­cess­ful con­gres­sion­al cam­paign has filed pa­per­work ac­count­ing for a pre­vi­ously un­ex­plained $400,000 drop in cash on hand in his chal­lenge of” Rep. Dar­rell Issa (R). “Sev­en amended re­ports to the Fed­er­al Elec­tion Com­mis­sion list two pre­vi­ously-un­dis­closed me­dia buys — $211,868 on Oct. 27 and $93,629 on Oct. 3. Both were paid to The New Me­dia Firm in Wash­ing­ton, D.C. Also in­cluded in amended re­ports were 11 pre­vi­ously-un­re­por­ted pay­ments total­ing $28,147 to re­im­burse Ap­pleg­ate for ex­penses he paid on the cam­paign’s be­half, in­clud­ing of­fice rent and me­dia con­sult­ing.”

“A state­ment re­leased Monday by Ap­pleg­ate’s cam­paign said the two me­dia buys paid by wire trans­fer had not been re­cor­ded on the books. The state­ment did not say who was re­spons­ible or how the trans­fers slipped through the cracks.” (San Diego Uni­on-Tribune)
