RICHMOND: Delegate Onzlee Ware (D-11) made the trip to Richmond to appear at a meeting of Virginia’s State Board of Elections Monday.
In a phone call Campaign Finance Manager, David Allen confirmed that Ware did not contest the allegation but asked for a reduction in the $1000 fine.
The $1000 was assessed as a resulted of Delegate Ware’s failure to add a disclosure statement on his campaign website.
It is viewed favorably when a candidate or official takes the time to personally appear before the board and Delegate Ware’s case was no exception. SBE Chair Jean Cunningham reduced the $1000 fine to $500.
Memo to the SBE for the November 23 meeting:
“On August 21, 2009, staff received an email from Mark Powell concerning Delegate Ware’s website, http://www.delegateonzleeware.com/. Mr. Powell alleged that the website does not contain the disclosures required by § 24.2-956 of the Code of Virginia. The definition of “Print Media” under § 24.2-955.1 does include websites.
On that same date, a letter was sent to Delegate Ware advising him of the allegation. As of November 12, 2009, the website still does not have the required disclosure.”
Delegate Ware’s website has since been update with the required disclosure.
