Inland Rep. Pete Aguilar’s campaign took aim at his GOP opponent’s recordkeeping as the first-term Democratic incumbent went on the attack in the race for a San Bernardino County congressional seat.
A spokesman for Republican Paul Chabot dismissed the accusations while accusing Aguilar of using a Democratic sit-in on the House of Representatives floor to solicit campaign donations.
In a press release issued Friday, Aug. 26 entitled “Paul Chabot’s Financial Disclosures: Intent to Conceal Information from the Public?”, Aguilar’s campaign took issue with number of items on Chabot’s federally required financial disclosure forms, including:
— Questioning the source of a $50,000 campaign loan from March.
— Faulting Chabot for not specifying whether he was still the owner of Chabot Strategies LLC.
— Accusing Chabot of failing to disclose royalties from a 2011 book he wrote.
— Alleging Chabot was more than a year late in filing his 2015 financial disclosure form.
— “Mr. Chabot did not report the amount of income earned on any of his assets in 2015 and 2016.”
