Sugar Stallings holds herself out a qualified to be Southern District PSC Commissioner but a casual perusal of her campaign finance reports leaves the impression she would have a hard time passing third grade math:
On her May 10, 2019 report Ms. Stallings lists $1,500 in receipts and $1,1000 in disbursements leaving a campaign cash balance of $500.
On Her June 10, 2019 report Ms. Stallings lists $285.62 in receipts and disbursements leaving a campaign cash balance of $500. (Beginning cash of $500 plus June receipts less June disbursements) Ms. Stallings claimed to have $214.38, which is $500 less $285.62)
On her July 10, 2019 Stallings lists $761.44 of receipts and $1,000 in disbursements with ending cash at $261.44, which is correct based upon a $500 beginning cash balance plus receipts less disbursements. On the July report Ms. Stallings sole disbursement is to her husband repaying a $1,000 campaign loan. Looking at the receipts section it appears Stallings is including expenses she paid personally as contributions, which is correct. But they are also expenses too despite not being listed as such on her campaign finance report. It begs the question of exactly where Stallings got the money to repay a $1,000 loan to her hubby if all but $300 of her June-July receipts were expenses that she paid personally.
Here are Stallings campaign finance reports through July 10, 2019: Continue reading “Understanding Basic Math: Southern District PSC Candidate Sugar Stallings’ Campaign Finance Reports Do Not Add Up”
