Campaign Finance Report Deadline 

  Nov. 9 is the deadline for candidates to file campaign finance reports in the Feb. 6, 2010 citywide primary. The filing date also doubles as a reminder that there are only 90 days left in municipal races for mayor, City Council, criminal sheriff and assessor. Asked if the Louisiana Board of Ethics plans court challenges for anyone who qualifies for office while still owing fines from previous races, new ethics administrator Kathleen Allen replied by email: "We will take a normal course of action — if it is a fine in a matter in which a judgment is obtained and [the fine] is outstanding and no payment plan has been approved." Allen did not elaborate. In the past, the board has gone to court to stop the campaigns of the worst violators. The ethics board Web site is filled with unsuccessful candidates from New Orleans who owe thousands of dollars in late fees for tardy reports from past elections. Candidates in the 2010 elections face fines of $100 day for each day campaign reports are late. — Johnson
