FTA "they must submit paperwork to the office of the Secretary of the Senate, which, in turn, forwards the reports to the FEC, which then pays an outside firm to perform data entry."

that word must mean something

FTFA:  "Currently, the Booker campaign is complying with existing filing rules," Alvarez said - which it will continue to do "until everyone is playing by the same set of rules."

"I refuse to lead by example and would rather bloviate than be the change I endorse!"

It pains me to say this but the most digitally savvy politician with a national profile is Darrell Issa.

And that tells you everything you need to know about US politics with regards to the sphere of current digital technology.

16 senators are already voluntarily e-filing (also FTA). Why can't Booker?

Surely this is something that should happen, but at the same time, what a tiny nit to pick.  Has anyone asked his position on TPS reports?

I'm just making a guess (I'm not a New Jersey resident so what do I know or care?) but I'm going to guess they have had staff in place to implement such a system for a while, as they are sitting Senators.  He isn't, so his staff might not have had time to implement it.

Well considering his opponent is a grade a f'ing moron its not like this will slow down Booker at all.

If this is his worse transgression then I am cool with it.  Other than this I haven't really heard anything negative about him.  Just stuff like him saving a person from a burning building.

It would have been nice if the author of TFA had bothered to ask instead of just writing a hit piece, wouldn't it?

In other news the Towels are killing each other off in Egypt. We need to send them more bullets...

Even the head towel ( whatever his name is) shakes his head....

Ehh he's a bit in the pocket of Wall Street (like last year during the campaign when Obama was hitting Romney on PE Booker went off the reservation and said that wasn't cool).

This shiat? This is nothing but just whining. Especially again compared to his competition who says openly racist hateful shiat.

That the Senate is stuck in the dark ages and employing antiquated, money-wasting processes in furnishing useful data to the public, and Corey Booker is one of them? Me, for one.

I don't blame him. If he makes a "mistake" couldn't they get him for wire fraud too?  Seems like the best move to me on his part.

More like tired of paying taxes to fund some preening highbinder who claims he "gets it" while doing the opposite.

If only the author had asked that question.

My guess is that since the paper forms are required, and it sounds from other articles like the 16 senators who are e-filing are doing so in addition to the paper forms, that he simply doesn't have the resources to file thousands of pages of documents both electronically and on paper.

Judges, can this count as my "ivory tower, latte dip sipping, academic limousine liberal" square?

Back in the early 90's I was strolling through my small town downtown and passed a car belonging to someone who was also apparently possessed of an incredibly small penis. As I walked by a voice  from the car intoned "Step away from the car. Step  away from the car." I remember thinking "What kind of asshole would put an alarm like that--one that went off before you even touched the thing--in his car? And what kind of asshole would think of making something like that?" I don't know the answer to the first question, but now I do to the second one. Which reminds me of the following joke:

A guy parks his BMW on the street and opens the door, which is immediately taken off by a passing motorist. The guy leaps out of his car and starts to scream "I can't believe this! This car is brand new! I just drove it off the lot! Who's going to pay for this? Oh my God, my CAR!" Meanwhile a cop has shown up at the scene and says to him "Sir, calm down. You're so caught up in materials things you didn't even notice your arm was torn off in the accident." The guy looks down at his empty sleeve and screams "My ROLEX!"

I'm concerned that he apparenty cares about himself.

Damn that Cory Booker for following the law as it is, not as he wishes it would be.
