Unity08: Three Versions of Financial Disclosure for the 2nd Quarter and 3rd Quarter of 2006

Brought to You By Irregular Times

Unity08 (aka Unity 08) is a registered corporation with the goal of arranging the nomination of one Republican and one Democrat to become the next president and vice president of the United States of America. It declares that next year it will successfully run the first-ever national secure online presidential nomination.

Chronology of Financial Disclosure Through January 5, 2007

In the summer of 2006, Unity08 pledged to make financial disclosures of all donations of at least $200, with updates once every two weeks. It failed to do so.

In the second week of October of 2006, just as Unity08 was receiving a final opinion from the Federal Election Commission that it must register as a Political Action Committee (PAC), Unity08 retracted its pledge to update its financial disclosures every two weeks. At that time, it updated the reports of donations of at least $200 on a page at Unity08.com, claiming the report on that page was complete through September 1, 2006. Unity08 pledged it would update this list once a month, "in the spirit of greater financial transparency, which is sorely lacking in politics today." It failed to do so. This webpage is no longer available in its old form, as it has been replaced. However, we fortunately saved an old copy of the webpage, and will use that copy to relate Unity08's donation claims at the time.

On October 16, 2006 at 4:29 pm, Unity08 sent a fax to the IRS of Form 8872, reporting donations of at least $200, as well as expenditures, for the 3rd quarter of 2006. That document is available for your review here, along with an earlier document describing similar activity in the 2nd quarter of 2006.

On January 5, 2007, Unity08 updated its donations disclosure page, claiming to have corrected unspecified errors in reporting and to have updated the donations disclosures to reflect donations through September 30, 2006. Since the original 3rd Quarter IRS Form 8872 disclosure shows no donations between September 1 and September 30, it is unclear what importance this later date of September 30 rather than September 1 might have. Also on January 5, 2006, Unity08 claimed to have submitted updated IRS forms for the 2nd and 3rd Quarter of 2006 correcting unspecified errors, and appealed to visitors to review those forms should they have questions. However, as of January 5 those updated forms are not available on the IRS website. Review of previous document submissions indicates that these documents will not become available for approximately one month. Unity08.com staff has been unresponsive to requests that they post copies of these updated IRS report forms.

Three Disclosures: Website October 2006, IRS October 2006, Website January 2007

As of January 5, 2007, then, there are three accounts of the donations above $200 to Unity 08 during the 2nd and 3rd quarters of 2006. The following are three accounts as I have collected them from IRS disclosures and the Unity08 website. The last number on each line is the reported dollar amount donated by the named person.

Please note that the three accounts are not identical. Discrepancies I notice are of three sorts:

1. Donors listed twice in the same list for different amounts.
2. Donations not noted in earlier reports that appear in later reports.
3. Donations appearing in earlier reports that disappear from later reports.
