Initial Campaign Disclosure List Had Errors

Mississippi Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann released a list of state elected officials who have failed to file campaign finance disclosure reports in a timely manner. State law requires the secretary of state to publish the list.

The initial list published Tuesday had some errors. The secretary of state's office Wednesday notified the media of the names that should not have been on the list. The names mistakenly included on the list were Senator Perry Lee,
Senator Tommy Dickerson, Representative Tad Campbell, Representative Gary Chism, Representative Steve Horne, and Representative Russ Nowell. In other words, those lawmakers did meet their reporting obligation and should not have been on the list in the first place.

The Office of the Secretary of State apologized for any confusion this may have caused.
