Councilman Lenny Zaprowski received 2 BIG Campaign Contributions in December 2017.
Cori Davenport & her husband John Davenport donated $2600 each totaling $5200. They gifted the generous donations immediately after Councilwoman Cori Davenport’s last City Council meeting on 12/5/17.
Lenny Zaprowski OMITTED the Davenport’s Campaign Contributions from the six disclosures he has filed since.
There have been six opportunities to correct this if it was an oversight and it has not yet happened.
Abra Kadabra 🎩. Just like that! Where have the unaccounted donations gone?
This leaves more questions than we have answers for:
- Where’s the money deposited – campaign or personal account?
- How could Lenny Zaprowski not notice the bank statements?
- Are there other unaccounted donations?
- How was the money spent?
Below is the statement from the 2-day report Lenny Zaprowski signed. The State of Georgia requires this quick form for donations over $1000.
I certify and affirm that I have examined this report, and say that the information in this report is complete, true, and correct. Further, I affirm that the contents in this report are the same as the contents in the electronic filing submitted, if also electronically filed. I further affirm that I understand that the above contribution(s) must also be reported on the next succeeding regularly scheduled campaign contribution disclosure report.
Lenny is required to report the $$$ in the following campaign contribution disclosures. In addition to disclosing how he spent the money. This is also unknown.
Lastly, Lenny Zaprowski will have to pay fines and submit amended forms to bring himself into compliance with the State of Georgia Campaign Ethics Commission rules and laws – if compelled to.
Update 9:30 pm:
EJ Moosa received the following text message from Lenny Zaprowski.
Ernest- this was just sent to me as a post on your blog. This is totally false and I consider it an attack on my character! I can assure you that all of my campaign disclosures are completely accurate and fully disclosed and easily provable! I demand an immediate retraction with an apology! As editor of the blog you have repeatedly made false accusations against my character. This has become a repeated pattern with harmful intent! I am hereby demanding a full retraction with an apology!
Lenny Zaprowski did not provide proof of how he can “assure” his campaign disclosures are completely accurate.
