Buzz: Dana Layton reports no expenditures in the LD60 race

Candidates have started filing their pre-convention disclosure reports and Dana Layton’s seems to have a serious discrepancy. While she lists a balance forward from her previous campaign and a $500 donation from Utah Bankers Association PAC, she doesn’t any expenditures at all. Assuming she had to at least pay a filing fee to run, this would seem to be a completely inaccurate report. This comes after missing the disclosure filing deadline earlier this week. That could raise questions from her challenger, Brad Daw, who was defeated in 2012 following a “dark money” campaign involving Jason Powers, John Swallow, and the payday loan industry.

You can view Rep Layton’s disclosure report on the Lt. Governor’s disclosures website.

UPDATE: As of Thursday April 10, her disclosures have been updated to the Lt. Gov.’s website.
