Embattled Assemblyman William Boyland Jr. hasn’t made required financial disclosures for any of his three active political campaign committees in a year-and-a-half. The State Board of Elections has sued Assemblyman Boyland multiple times for his failure to reveal campaign contributions and expenditures resulting in 41 judgments against his three committees and at least $22,586.50 in damages, none of which have been paid.
Assemblyman Boyland, who’s currently facing his second set of federal bribery charges in less than a year, has three active campaign committees. He filed financial disclosures for one of his committees in July 2010. No disclosures have been filed on the other two since January 2009. Failure to file required financial disclosures results in lawsuits from the state Board of Elections.
Yesterday, The Politicker talked with BOE spokesman John Conklin who confirmed the board has filed multiple lawsuits against Assemblyman Boyland, but he was unable to tell us precisely how many–until now.
“We have 41 unpaid judgments against 3 committees totaling $22,586.50 (plus interest which is assessed at the time the judgment is paid). He has not paid any of these judgments,” Mr. Conklin wrote in an email to The Politicker.
Tuesday was the most recent deadline for financial disclosures and, as of this writing, Assemblyman Boyland still has not filed, which means he may be subject to another lawsuit. Assemblyman Boyland has not responded to a request for comment on this story.
