Burgess Owens and campaign fined for late donation filings
Following his telltale pattern of recklessness when it comes to campaign finance, Burgess Owens has again shown his belief that he doesn’t have to follow the same rules as everyone else,” said Utah Democratic Party Chair Jeff Merchant. “While everyday Utahns work hard to put food on the table for their families, Representative Owens skirts the law and expects to face no consequences for his actions. If Burgess Owens can’t be truthful when running his own campaign, he can’t be expected to work effectively for the interests of Utahns.”
KSL reached out to Congressman Owens’ campaign for comment and has yet to hear back.
The campaign was being eyed by the FEC mid-summer of 2020. The New York Times reported the campaign accepted $135,000 in illegal contributions.
