Jim Justice’s campaign has promised to file his late Personal Financial Disclosure (PFD) by Saturday, September 23rd. Despite having nearly four months to complete it, Justice failed to file his PFD by the deadline of August 24th. Personal financial disclosures are “mandatory for members and candidates.”
“Jim Justice’s failure to file his financial disclosure means he is breaking the law and hiding potential conflicts of interest from West Virginians. Justice’s shadowy finances and litany of financial scandals are sure to receive further scrutiny as the GOP’s nasty primary continues to escalate,” said DSCC spokesperson Amanda Sherman Baity.
Justice has a history of attempting to hide key information from West Virginians. Previously, lawyers attempted to “use [Justice’s] Senate bid as [an] excuse” to “push off” and “shield” his financial disclosures and a judge “rejected those arguments.” He has repeatedly refused to release records pertaining to his official schedule or official calendar and the DSCC is currently suing Justice’s office to demand the release of these records.
